Oncologist, Radiation 's  Response
test alteration may be due to radiotherapy. PET scan at 12 week is a good indicator of disease assessment. mild activity does not signify anything. follow your oncologist's advice. blood test will not be very helpful only for prognostic purpose HPV titre can be done. anyway you will be fine. do not worry. I Think you have cured from disease.
