Radiation therapy is a form of cancer treatment that uses radiation (X-rays). Radiation therapy may be given on its own, or with other forms of cancer treatment such as chemotherapy or surgery. Like having a CT scan, radiation therapy is painless.
Radiation therapy is a localized treatment, which means that it generally only affects the part of your body that is being treated. Predominantly radiation therapy needs to be delivered over a number of days or weeks.
