Publisher's Synopsis

More than one in three people in the UK will be diagnosed with cancer during their lives, and radiotherapy is the most widely used form of treatment for cancer. Yet, little is written about this treatment, and confusion abounds. People may not understand what the treatment does, or why they should have radiotherapy as opposed to other treatments such as chemotherapy or surgery. This book by an acclaimed cancer expert places radiotherapy within the context of overall cancer treatment. Quality of life is important in radiotherapy, and this book also looks at side effects, everyday life, social life, travel, and looks at exercise and diet that may be helpful.
