Radiation oncology uses powerful energy particles to kill cancer cells inside the body. There are many types of radiation therapy, which can be used to treat a wide range of cancers (often in addition to surgery and chemotherapy).

After an initial consult, diagnosis, and confirmed treatment plan, you have the opportunity to undergo a radiation simulation. These trial runs help you set appropriate expectations and feel more comfortable with the process. Then, you’ll complete the set number of radiation sessions as outlined in your customized plan (usually lasting four to five weeks).
