Breast Cancer Treatment Information

Treating Breast Cancer with Radiation

Radiation is a form of energy that's directed at breast cancer tissue. It helps to destroy any cancer cells that may be left after surgery. Radiation therapy and its side effects are limited, for the most part, to the cancerous breast, unlike chemotherapy, during which chemicals travel through the body. Radiation is not usually painful, although you may experience some minor discomfort from skin irritation. Your doctor can supply you with information on radiation which should answer your questions and de-mystify the process. You can also get good information from others who have gone through radiation treatment.
