Al's Comment:

Now that patients are living longer, safety becomes very important.  At the time Optune was invented, the number of long term survivors was negligible, so we did not worry about long term safety.  Now that there is a chance at becoming a long term survivor, safety matters a lot!  This was a study of over 11,000 patients who used Optune and they found no serious side effects other than skin irritations which were manageable.
