What are the Side Effects of Radiation Therapy?

Radiation therapy is a form of cancer treatment that hopes to kill cancer cells with concentrated doses of radiation. It is used because it stops cancerous cells from reproducing and spreading. However, radiation is harmful to healthy cells as well as cancerous cells. This is part of the reason why radiation therapy has negative side effects.

Commonly, people who receive radiation therapy experience nausea and discomfort. Radiation therapy doesn’t affect everyone the same way, but many people experience:

  • Hair loss
  • Swelling
  • Diarrhea
  • Skin damage (itching, peeling, blistering)
  • Skin discoloration

Radiation therapy is difficult on your body. Make sure you talk to your physician about how you can mitigate the onslaught of side effects and the potential for long-term aftereffects to make this treatment as easy on your body as possible.
