Radiation Therapy for Tumor Patients - All You Need To Know!

Radiation Therapy for Tumor Patients - All You Need To Know!

Radiation therapy is used for destroying the brain tumor cells, and relieves the symptoms of discomfort and pain caused by the tumor. Radiation is usually used after biopsy or resection of the tumor. This is done to destroy the microscopic cells of the tumor which have been left behind. Sometimes this is also an option for unresectable brain tumors or the metastatic tumors which spread to the brain from other parts of the body.

The radiation therapy is planned on several factors like the size and type of the tumor and the extent to which it has spread. Usually external beam radiation is used for the brain cancer and the area radiated involves the tumor and the surrounding area. In case of a metastatic brain cancer the radiation is given to the entire brain. People who have lung cancer receive radiation in the brain as a preventive therapy in order to stop the metastatic cancer from developing.

Side effects of brain cancer radiation
Depending on the site, dose, and other factors the radiation therapy when given to the brain might cause side effects. Hair loss, fatigue, edema, skin irritations are a few common side effects of brain tumor radiation. In some cases some people might develop swelling of the ankle, foot, calf and blood clots in the leg.

What is radiation therapy?
Radiation therapy is basically the use of targeted energy like X-ray and radioactive substances to kill the cancer cells, or shrink them or change the symptoms related to cancer. This therapy might be used as:

  1. Primary treatment for the destruction of the cancer cells
  2. In combination with other ongoing treatments to inhibit the growth of the cancer cells
  3. Prior to another treatment to shrink the cancer cells
  4. Post some treatment to stop the growth of any cancer cells that have been left behind
  5. To relieve cancer symptoms

Types of radiation
Some of the radiation methods commonly used are:

  1. External beam radiation therapy: In this the radiation is directed from outside the body on the cancerous cells in the body. Some examples of this are IMRT, TomoTherapy, stereotactic radiosurgery, 3D conformal radiation therapy and IGRT.
  2. Internal radiation therapy: In this the radioactive substance is placed close to the tumor with the help of a catheter or some carrier. Examples of this are high-dose rate brachytherapy.
  3. Systemic radiation therapy: In this a radioactive substance is injected or swallowed, which further locates and destroys the cancerous cells. Example of this is radioactive iodine therapy.
  4. Managing radiation side effects: Radiation therapy in some cases can cause unpleasant side effects like fatigue and nausea. Thus it should be kept in mind that maximum radiation doses should be given with less or little impact on the healthy tissues. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Oncologist.

There are about 70% of factors responsible as causative for cancer to develop except those due to hereditary one. These can be modified to prevent cancers. These include addiction, high fat diet, sedentary life style etc.

What is the cause of cancer and what is prevention. Please give the details of all cause of cancer.

M.Ch - Surgical Oncology, MS - General Surgery
Oncologist, Ahmedabad
Hi, cancer is a genetic disease. And this is a bottom line. Around half of cancer occur without obvious reason. Half of them have a contributory factors like, smoking, tobacco consumption, high fat diet, unhealthy life style, and so on. Around 7 - 10 % patients have hereditary cause (parents or their relatives had cancer). Prevention is of paramount importance. Adapt healthy life style. Avoid tobacco consumption in any form. Regular health checkup is essential for early detection. For further query please consult on private chat.

Cancer is abnormal uncontrolled proliferation of cells, usually caused by some abnormal signal triggered by carcinogens. It is usually treàted by surgery, chemotherapy or radiation therapy or combination of all. Cancer treatment may be done right from government hospitals, medical college, regional cancer centres at very economical rates.
