Palliative Radiation Therapy

Palliative radiation therapy is radiation therapy that is used to lessen bone pain when prostate cancer has spread to the bones. Palliative radiation therapy is usually given by external beam radiation. Radiation beams from an x-ray machine are carefully focused on the areas of bones that have the cancer. It may take 2 to 3 radiation treatments for your bone pain to be less. There can be side effects with palliative radiation therapy. Some side effects depend on what part of your body is getting the radiation. The common side effects that you may have are: skin irritation where the radiation beam is placed, fatigue or tiredness, diarrhea, not having an appetite (not feeling like eating).
