What is radiotherapy ?

Radiotherapy is a type of ionising radiation (high energy) that destroys the cancer cells and a few benign lesions (non-cancerous) in the treated area by damaging the DNA of those cells. It uses radiation, usually x-rays, to treat cancer cells. Radiotherapy can be broadly categorized as Conventional Radiotherapy and Conformal Radiotherapy.

It can be used to cure cancer, reduce the chance of cancer coming back or to help relieve symptoms. It can be merged with other treatments, such as chemotherapy or surgery. Nearly 50 out of 100 patients have radiotherapy at some point during their cancer treatment.
