April 13, 2007, Newsletter Issue #61: Treating Breast Cancer with Radiation

Tip of the Week

Anyone concerned about undergoing radiation therapy for treatment of breast cancer should not be. Radiation is a form of energy in which, when directed at the breast tissue, helps to cure the cancer by destroying any cancer cells that may have been left behind after surgery. Unlike chemotherapy, in which chemicals travel through the body, radiation therapy and its side effects are for the most part limited to the cancerous breast. The therapy is not usually painful, though skin irritation can cause minor discomfort. If you are facing radiation therapy for breast cancer, your doctor will supply you with detailed information that can take the mystery out of your treatment. Talking to other people who have undergone radiation therapy can also help put your mind at ease, and give you a better understanding of radiation in the treatment of breast cancer.
