In the wake of a cancer diagnosis, your doctor will begin discussing your cancer treatment plan. Your cancer treatment plan is a roadmap to recovery. This roadmap is designed with the help of many different medical professionals — from radiation oncologists to pathologists — and may include one or more therapies like chemotherapy, immunotherapy, surgery, and radiation therapy.
Though radiation therapy, also called radiotherapy, is a localized and typically painless treatment option, it can still be unnerving. To provide our patients with some peace of mind, the radiation oncologists at SERO have created a detailed step-by-step guide to radiation therapy.
In this guide, you will find more information about the radiation therapy process, tips for preparing for radiotherapy treatment sessions, and more.
