Radiation Therapy for Bone Cancer
At Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA), radiation therapy is used to treat some bone cancers. Radiation treatments may also be used following surgery (known as adjuvant therapy), to kill any microscopic cancer cells that were left behind.
Radiation therapy may also be used to treat more advanced cancers when surgery may not be as effective, or to shrink tumors and relieve symptoms if the cancer has spread.
Because bone cancers are often surrounded by sensitive tissues like nerves and blood vessels, they can be challenging and complicated to treat. At CTCA, we use advanced radiation treatments to maximize the effect on the bone cancer cells, and minimize side effects caused by damage to healthy tissues.
