Radiation oncology is the medical specialty designed to treat cancer cells in the body. This treatment uses radiation (often done by X-ray) to kill or control cancer cells. The doctor performing the procedure is called a radiation oncologist. Generally, it is non-invasive and has proven to be effective in controlling cancer in many patients. Some doctors will recommend this combined with other treatments, such as chemotherapy.
Common conditions requiring radiation:
