Yea, one of the fringe benefits of cancer treatment, for sure. I am beginning to think that the treatment from my husband's Hodgkins at 24 was the reason he got colon cancer. Kind of opposite of what this article is about but I am suspicious. Especially since his cancer was in the transverse colon and very possibly in the field of radiation when they did all of his scans for the Hodgkins. I read that SRC can be caused from radiation soooo......

He lived for another 35 years so I guess the trade off was worth it. Wish they had some followup for people though that could keep track of this sort of thing.
