EBRT for cervical cancer

EBRT for cervical cancer

EBRT helps to lower the risk of gastrointestinal and sexual function side effects typically associated with radiation treatment for cervical cancer.

Some additional advantages of EBRT include:

  • It’s a fast, painless outpatient procedure.
  • It does not carry the standard risks or complications of surgery, such as surgical bleeding, post-operative pain, or the risk of stroke, heart attack or blood clot.
  • Unlike chemotherapy, which circulates through the body, ERBT is targeted to the area being treated.
