Cancer also known as a malignant tumor or malignant neoplasm, is a group of diseases involving abnormal cell growth with the potential to invade or spread to other parts of the body. Not all tumors are cancerous; benign tumors do not spread to other parts of the body. Possible signs and symptoms include: a new lump, abnormal bleeding, a prolonged cough, unexplained weight loss, and a change in bowel movements, among others. While these symptoms may indicate cancer, they may also occur due to other issues. There are over 100 different known cancers that affect humans.
Radiation therapy is a one way of cancer treatment. It uses high doses of radiation to kill cancer cells and stop spreading the destruction of new healthy cells. Mostly this therapy is useful to all cancer patients. The radiation may be external, from special machines, or internal, from radioactive substances that a doctor places inside your body which creates a radioactive pathway. Radiation therapy can damage normal cells as well as cancer cells. Treatment must be carefully planned to minimize side effects of the radiation. Common side effects include skin color changes and fatigue. Other side effects depend on the part of your body being treated.
