External Beam Radiation Therapy Treatments

When you undergo external beam radiation therapy treatment, each session is painless, just like getting an X-ray. The radiation is directed at your tumor from a machine located away from your body (usually using technology called a linear accelerator). External beam radiation is noninvasive, unlike surgery which is an invasive process.
