Steps to take before the treatment
Our team of doctors at Medanta will carefully review your medical condition and will map the areas to be treated. You will need to go through a CT scan for determining and mapping the treatment area. Ink marks or permanent tattoo dots will be placed on your skin to determine the area of treatment.
What happens during the treatment?
There are two approaches for radiation therapy, external radiation and internal radiation. In external beam radiation, high-powered energy beams are directed from a machine outside your body to kill the cancerous cells. In internal radiation, a small radioactive device is placed in the breast near the tumour site which delivers radiation to the affected breast tissues.
After the procedure
The therapy can be done on an outpatient basis. Your doctor will guide you through all the post-care procedures to be followed.
