Cancer Radiation Therapy

Radiation therapy uses high energy particle or radiation or waves such as x-rays, gamma rays, electron beams, protons to destroy or shrink Cancer cell. When compared to normal cell,  the Cancer cells grow and divide faster, radiation works by making small breaks in the DNA inside the cells. Cancer cells whose DNA is damaged by radiation stops dividing or die.  The normal cell present nearby Cancer cells can also be affected by radiation, leading to side effects. Radiation therapy may be use alone or in combination with surgery Immunotherapy and Chemotherapy. The radiation can be given in 3 ways depending upon the type of Cancer and location. Types of radiation are external radiation, internal radiation, systemic radiation and others.
