What to Expect From Radiation Therapy
Many patients are confused by radiation therapy, especially if providers explain it using oncology terminology. But in basic terms, radiotherapy is a cancer treatment that relies on high-energy waves to kill cancer cells.
Since radiation is localized and non-invasive, there are no severe side effects. However, some patients do experience skin irritation like swelling, dryness, itchiness, and flaking. Before treatment, your radiation oncologist can suggest tips for caring for your skin during radiation.
