Radio Therapy Side Effects
Radiotherapy Side Effects
IMP : Radiation-related solid cancers
Epidemiologic research has demonstrated that ionizing radiation in the form of radiotherapy accounts for the elevated risks of certain second cancers. An individual risk of radiation-related, or radiogenic, second cancer depends on several critical, often inter-dependent factors: the type and dose of radiation received; the amount of the body treated (treatment field); the part of the body irradiated and its inherent tissue sensitivity; and the age at irradiation.
If Patient is inoperable or does not want surgery He is often advised to undergo Chemotherapy with Radiation.
The result of this combination is very distressing in most cases as the videos below will show.
If Chemotherapy and radiotherapy could cure a patient or arrest the cancer why would you need any surgery in first place?.
At Orchid Oncology Centre we minimize the radiation exposure by using laser which does not cause any Ionising Radiation damage
