Profwag posted a list of cancers that do well when treated with chemo/radiation. Most of these are lymphomas (Hodgkins/non-Hodgkins), which I've already addressed. Choriocarcinoma, in low-risk patients, but in high-risk patients it requires aggressive treatment and the diagnosis is much poorer.
"Childhood sarcomas (w/ radiation & surgery) 70-90" - Profwag
This is somewhat misleading because of the wide range of conditions and it doesn't include chemotherapy:http://www.cancer.gov/cancertopics/pdq/ ... onal/page5
"The largest prospective pediatric trial failed to demonstrate any benefit with adjuvant (chemotherapy) vincristine, dactinomycin, cyclophosphamide, and doxorubicin."
"Acute lymphocytic leukemia 60" - Profwag
Aggressive chemotherapy is indicated, with serious long term complications.http://adam.about.com/reports/000086_4.htmhttp://adam.about.com/reports/000086_9.htm
... because it's poison.
