Radiation Therapy for Brain Tumors

Radiation therapy is used to treat brain tumors painlessly and non-invasively. During treatment, high-energy X-rays are delivered to brain tumors safely and effectively. Side effects are usually minimal, and most patients return to their normal activities immediately after each treatment. Radiation therapy serves as an effective treatment for primary brain tumors and metastatic brain lesions, working within cancer cells to damage their ability to multiply. Several factors determine candidacy for brain tumor radiation therapy treatment including your age, overall health, the type, location and size of the tumor, as well as how aggressive the tumor appears to be.
