Questions for the Radiation Oncologist

The risk of possible side effects must be weighed against the potential benefits of radiation therapy and should be discussed before starting treatment.

  • What type of radiation therapy are you recommending?

  • What is the purpose of this radiation therapy?

  • What are the chances it will work?

  • What other treatments (like surgery or chemotherapy) will I get?

  • What will happen if I do nothing?

  • Are there other treatment options?

  • How many daily treatments will I need?

  • What happens during each treatment?

  • What are the likely side effects?
