Radiation Treatment

Radiation Treatment uses focused X-rays, which are a form of energy, to destroy cancerous cells while minimizing the exposure of healthy tissue. Radiation damages the DNA in cancer cells, interrupting their ability to reproduce and causing them to die and the tumor to shrink. Once a treatment plan is identified for radiation, the radiotherapy process then follows. For more information download our patient brochure.
