Is Radiation Therapy for Breast Cancer Less 'Scary' Than Expected?

Most women who received radiation therapy would encourage it

It's also encouraging to know that most people who underwent radiation would recommend others to do the same as well. The advances in technology today have made radiation therapy much easier for patients to access and convenient for them to schedule in their busy lives. Furthermore, newer radiation technology is able to deliver more targeted and precise dosing to affect only malignant tissue, sparing as much healthy tissue as possible and limiting side effects. Radiation therapy can often help increase survival rates in breast cancer patients, which is an important aspect to consider when weighing the pros and cons of any therapy that is available to you.
