Radiation therapy, the careful and precise use of high-energy radiation to target tumors or diseased areas of the body, has advanced dramatically over the years, becoming safer and more effective. Besides curing cancer, radiation therapy can shrink tumors that press against bones, nerves or organs. It may also be used before surgery to reduce a tumor, or after surgery to stop the growth of remaining cancer cells.
