Dr. David :

Hello, this is Dr. David. I have read your question and I'm ready to help.

Dr. David :

I am a cancer doctor

Dr. David :

I would ask for a copy of the pathology report from the surgery

Dr. David :

the pathology report will say if there was cancer cells or precancerous cells see at the margins

Dr. David :

which is the very edges of the specimen which was cut out.

Dr. David :

if there are bad cells there, then you definitely need radiation.

Dr. David :

if the margins are clean, then you are safe.
