  • Question: Is a tumor expected to shrink after radiation? It has been four months since my last radiation treatment. I know some tumors do shrink but is that the norm?
  • Answer:06/04/2011
    Shrinkage is a good sign but tumors that have had a bleed inside may not shrink right away. Ask your doctor about different MRI scans that can tell if it is necrosis or new tumor that can cause non-change.
