Radiation Therapy is an Effective Cure for Cancer

Radiation therapy is an effective cancer treatment

As a trusted treatment option for many decades, radiation therapy is continually improving and forms a part of the treatment program in around 40% of all people cured of cancer. It is an effective cancer treatment with long-lasting positive outcomes.

Radiation therapy can be applied safely to a wide range of cancers, and may be used alone or in conjunction with surgery, chemotherapy (anti-cancer drugs) and other treatments. It is usually completely non-invasive, and accessed through out-patient clinics.

With extensive knowledge and evidence of its long-lasting effectiveness, radiation therapy compares very favourably with other cancer treatments in terms of cancer control, and quality of life outcomes. For all these reasons, radiation therapy is a very appealing treatment option.
