Radiation therapy is a program to deliver radiation to the exact spot that is needed, a necessary treatment that can cure cancer.
Nearly 60% of patients will receive radiation therapy sometime during their cancer treatment.
The goal of radiation therapy is to remove cancer completely.
For patients that can’t be cured, the goal is to relieve pain and other forms of suffering and improve the quality of life.
Though a cancer diagnosis can be very frightening, it is comforting to know that at the Lawrence Cancer Center we partner advanced radiation therapy technology with an environment of hope and encouragement.
Our goal is to help our patients live life to the fullest and we strive to decrease the burden of cancer and the inconvenience of cancer treatment.
