How does tumor radiotherapy work?

The radiation used in radiotherapy kills rapidly-dividing cells such as cancerous cells because it contains high-energy X-rays leading to irreversible damage to the genetic material of these cells, leading to their death.

The radiation source could be internal as the implantation of radioactive material either inside or close to the tumor, and it could be external meaning the rays are projected from outside on the location of the tumor to produce permanent irreversible damage.

What are the side effects of radiotherapy?

Radiation damage may extend to healthy cells causing some symptoms such as fatigue, skin damage, and loss of appetite.
