Frequently Asked Questions about Cancer

There have been dramatic improvements in delivering radiation therapy that have greatly improved the accuracy and lowered the risk of complications, but many patients still experience some side effects. 

The side effects of radiation depend on the area treated, the total dose and individual sensitivity. Patients who are getting chemotherapy at the same time as radiation will typically have more side effects. Avoiding things that can aggravate side effects (such as continued smoking or excessive sun exposure) can help along with good nutrition.

For a detailed discussion of side effects by treatment area and nursing instructions, visit AboutCancer.com.
