What Is Radiation Therapy?
Radiation therapy is a localized and typically painless form of cancer treatment. During radiotherapy, a radiation oncologist uses special machines to direct high doses of radiation toward cancer cells. Over time, the radiation destroys the cancer cells and shrinks cancerous lesions. This form of radiation therapy is called external beam radiation therapy.
During brachytherapy, also called internal radiation, radioactive pellets are placed in or next to cancerous tumors. These pellets may be left inside the patient for a short period of time or indefinitely, depending on the type and stage of cancer being treated.
