About Radiation Therapy

More than 50 percent of all cancer patients benefit from radiation therapy (also known as radiotherapy), which uses high-energy beams to pinpoint and destroy cancer cells. While similar to an X-ray, the radiation used in cancer treatments is precise and customized to each patient’s cancer, most often delivered on an outpatient basis.

Depending on the type of cancer, radiation therapy may be recommended as the only treatment necessary to combat your disease. Or, you may benefit from radiation therapy to eliminate any residual cancer cells remaining after surgery. Radiation is also used to help shrink a relatively large, advanced tumor before surgery or chemotherapy.

In some cases, as with prostate cancer, radiation may be recommended as an initial therapy when the cancer is confined to the prostate. For certain prostate cancers, Radiotherapy may be combined with hormone therapy. Radiation is also used in cases in which there are signs that the cancer has returned after initial surgery.
