Radiation Therapy Treatments

This therapy may be used before surgery to shrink the tumour or after surgery to destroy any remaining cancer cells. In external radiation therapy, a machine beams the rays at the cancer. In some cases, an implant containing a radioactive substance may be inserted into the tumour to deliver a higher dose of radiation than is possible externally.
