We’ve created this site to help you understand radiation therapy treatment.

Whether you’ve received a cancer diagnosis, or are a physician, carer, family member or patient, we’re here to help.

You’ll be guided through the most common questions and misconceptions about the process for radiation therapy treatment – including:

  • the different types of treatments we offer – including both cancerous and benign (non-cancerous) conditions
  • what happens during planning and treatment
  • side effects
  • and more

We also have plenty of real life stories from patients who are keen to share the highs and lows of their treatments with you.
