EBRT for gallbladder cancer

EBRT for gallbladder cancer

Specific advantages of EBRT for gallbladder cancer include the following:

  • EBRT is an outpatient procedure. This technique does not carry the standard risks or complications associated with major surgery for gallbladder cancer, which can include surgical bleeding, post-operative pain or the risk of stroke, heart attack or blood clot.
  • The procedure itself is painless.
  • EBRT poses no risk of radioactivity to you or others with whom you have contact. Thus, as you undergo EBRT, you may continue normal activities with family and friends.
