Radiation

Radiation

Radiation treatments are delivered using a linear accelerator which is a machine that produces powerful radiation. This type of radiation is invisible and able to destroy cancer cells. We are able to control the dose confined to the cancer tissue, with little effect on healthy tissue.

Radiation may be used in a variety of ways to treat cancer. It may be used to slow the growth of a tumor or shrink it enough to relieve pressure on nerves and other vital organs. However, in most of the cases dealing with the prostate, we are using radiation to destroy the cancer and obtain a cure.
