Side Effects of Radiation Oncology

Radiation therapy can cause both early (acute) and late (chronic) side effects. Acute side effects occur during treatment, and chronic side effects occur months or even years after treatment ends. The side effects that develop depend on the area of the body being treated, the dose given per day, the total dose given, the patient’s general medical condition, and other treatments given at the same time. Acute radiation side effects are caused by damage to rapidly dividing normal cells in the area being treated, whereas late side effects depends on other aspects of their cancer treatment in addition to radiation therapy, as well as their individual risk factors.
