I am a radiation oncology doctor.

I am sorry you have an inoperable astrocytoma.

you should see a radiation oncology doctor to see if radiation can help treat the astrocytoma without surgery.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
