    • However, if you are having ACTIVE cancer treatment (Chemotherapy or Radiotherapy) or have cancer but are not in active treatment, the consensus for this medical condition in the PBM Therapy field is that it is best practice for you to get your oncologists permission that they are happy for you to have PBM Therapy*.
