Part of an Integrated Approach to Cancer Care
There are many things that factor into a successful approach to battling cancer, and radiation therapy is often a key element. Radiation, in various forms, is used to kill cancer cells by preventing them from multiplying. Radiation destroys the cells’ DNA, helping to cure or control cancer, or to alleviate some of the symptoms associated with cancer.
Radiation oncology treatment may be used alone or in conjunction with other types of treatment, such as surgery or chemotherapy – the use of anticancer drugs to treat cancerous cells – as well as other treatments.
