Assessing Ear Damage in Young Cancer Patients Treated With Cisplatin
Basic Trial Information
RATIONALE: New ways to find out about hearing loss after treatment with chemotherapy may improve the ability to plan cancer treatment and may help patients live more comfortably.
PURPOSE: This clinical trial is assessing ear damage in young cancer patients treated with cisplatin.
