Radiotherapy Guides

Welcome to our Radiotherapy Guides! 

Radiotherapy is a common treatment for cancer that uses high-energy radiation to kill cancer cells and shrink tumors. It's a complex treatment that can come with a range of side effects and challenges.

That's why we've created this resource - to provide comprehensive guides and information to help you understand what radiotherapy is, how it works, and what to expect during treatment. Our guides cover a range of topics related to radiotherapy, including how it's delivered, managing side effects, and tips for coping with the emotional and physical challenges of treatment.

Whether you know someone having radiation treatment, or you're just beginning radiotherapy, in the midst of treatment, or in recovery, our guides are here to provide support and guidance throughout your cancer journey. We hope that the information and advice offered here will help you feel more confident and prepared as you undergo radiotherapy, and that it will help you achieve the best possible outcome from your treatment.
