Radiation Therapy at MelroseWakefield Healthcare: Providing Hope to Cancer Patients near Stoneham, MA & Surrounding Communities

Radiation therapy is commonly used to treat many types of cancer. At Tufts Medical Center Community Care, we offer a full spectrum of radiation oncology services, conveniently located near Stoneham for residents of northeast Massachusetts.

Radiation therapy uses high-energy particles to destroy cancer cells. This treatment can be delivered in several ways, depending on the specific location of a patient’s tumor and the types of tissues or organs that surround it. The main forms of radiation treatment include:

  • External beam radiation – This treatment directs high-energy rays to the tumor from a machine (linear accelerator) outside of the body.
  • Internal radiation – A temporary radiation source is placed in the body near the tumor. This form of radiation therapy is also called brachytherapy.
  • Systemic radiation – In this treatment, radiopharmaceutical medication that travels throughout the body is administered orally or intravenously.

If you have been diagnosed with cancer, radiation therapy may be recommended as part of your treatment plan. Located near Stoneham, MA, Tufts Medical Center Community Care is staffed by renowned physicians who collaborate to ensure we provide well-managed and personalized care to treat the person as a whole, not just the disease.
