Radiation therapy is a form of cancer treatment that uses high-energy X-rays to shrink or destroy malignant growths. It is often used in conjunction with other treatments, such as chemotherapy, surgery, and immunotherapy. The Hallmark Health Hematology and Oncology Clinic, located a short drive from Somerville, MA, is home to world-class cancer specialists who provide several forms of radiation therapy, including:

  • Internal radiation – Also known as brachytherapy, this treatment involves temporarily placing a radiation source in the body near the tumor.
  • External beam radiation – During this treatment, a machine outside of the body directs high-energy rays toward the tumor.
  • Systemic radiation – This form of radiation involves administering radiopharmaceutical medication that travels throughout the body to attack metastasized tumors.

At HHMA, we understand that undergoing cancer treatment can feel overwhelming. That’s why our oncologists, surgeons, and other specialists take the time to listen to our patients’ concerns and care for the whole person, not just the disease. As our patient, you can be assured that you’ll receive all the information you’ll need to make educated and confident decisions regarding your cancer treatment.
