Three (3) years is the minimum age for radiation treatment in Israel. This means that there is very little experience in radiation children under this age even if a decision was made to radiate before that age.
If you live in Israel or any other country with a similar protocol and your child’s cancer requires radiation therapy, consider treatment abroad where experience in such a crucial treatment exists.
