Radiation therapy for adrenal cancer

For advanced stage adrenal cancer, radiation therapy is often given following surgery. The radiation may be used to:

  • Treat tumors that cannot be removed during surgery
  • Decrease the risk of tumor recurrence
  • Treat areas the cancer may have spread (metastasized) to such as the brain, liver or bones

Some of the radiation therapy delivery systems used at Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA) include TomoTherapy® and Trilogy®. These forms of intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) are designed to pinpoint radiation treatment to hard-to-reach tumors, reducing harm to surrounding healthy tissue and organs.
