Radiation therapy uses high-energy rays or particles to destroy cancer cells. Radiation may be used for mesothelioma:
The amount of radiation given during treatment, and when and how it is given, will be different for each person.
Mesothelioma is usually treated with external beam radiation therapy. A machine directs radiation to the tumour and some of the surrounding tissue.
A newer type of external beam radiation therapy, called intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), may be used to more accurately treat mesothelioma while reducing the amount of radiation to surrounding normal tissue. IMRT helps reduce side effects to normal tissue.
