Electricity helps control man’s brain tumor

The doctor mentioned, Dr Peereboom, is one of the best neuro-oncologists in the world, and one of my favorites. However, I disagree with what he says in the article. He talks about the average benefit is living 5 months longer with Optune than without. That is true but I look at it in a different way. I would probably not choose something that only adds 5 months to the average survival (if there were any other choices). I look at it as your chances of being alive in 5 years goes from about 4% without Optune, to 29% if you use Optune with at least a 90% compliance rate. That is definitely worth choosing.
