Radiation therapy uses high-energy rays or particles to destroy cancer cells. Radiation may be used for adrenal gland cancer:
The amount of radiation given during treatment, and when and how it is given, will be different for each person.
Bone metastases from adrenal gland cancer may be treated with external beam radiation therapy. A machine directs radiation to the tumour and some of the surrounding tissue.
Targeted therapy means the cancer treatment is delivered directly to the cancer cell (the target). Targeted radiation therapy is given by attaching radioactive material (radioisotope) to an agent that binds to receptors on the cancer cell. This allows the radiation to be delivered directly to the cancer cell and limits its effects on normal cells.
