External beam radiation therapy include the primary treatment of specific tumor types, adjuvant treatment in addition to chemotherapy for better tumor control, and for palliation to improve quality of life for advanced cancer cases.
External beam radiation uses high-powered beams of energy to kill cancer cells. Beams of radiation are precisely aimed at the cancer using a machine that moves around your body.
Radiation therapy is a type of cancer treatment that uses beams of intense energy to kill cancer cells.
Many of the commonly used cancer treatments, such as radiation or chemotherapy, kill tumor cells. But sometimes, after those cells have died and been cleared away, a tumor will respond by growing faster and more aggressively.
In general, tissue cells don’t like to be crowded. When cells are packed in from all sides, they slow down, or even stop, reproducing. If nearby space opens up because of a wound, say, it can prompt cells to divide and fill the gap. Tumors may be using this same mechanism to respond to the intentional damage done by cancer treatments.
When we kill these tumor cells, we basically provide open space.That triggers a regeneration response.
