Radiation treatment

This information has been written to support you during radiation treatment (sometimes called radiotherapy or radiation therapy). Throughout this information we use the term radiation treatment. It provides information about treatment, practical support and the emotional impact of cancer.

We can’t tell you what is the best treatment for you. You need to discuss this with your own doctors and family; however, we hope this information will answer some of your questions and help you think about the questions you might want to ask your doctors.

If you find this information helpful, you might like to pass it on to your family and friends.

For those who might want more in-depth information on radiation treatment we have included ‘The science of radiation treatment’ section.
