Health Information

 

Radiation oncology uses radiation waves to treat cancer, particularly tumors. Radiation, which destroys a cancer cell's ability to reproduce, is often combined with surgery, chemotherapy or hormone therapy as a means to eliminate cancer cells.

Radiation can be an external form of treatment, where an X-ray beam is pointed directly at the body part requiring treatment, or it can be internal, where an implant delivering the radiation is placed directly into or near the tumor.
