What happens after radiotherapy for a brain tumor?
The side effects of radiation therapy on the brain may not occur until two to three weeks after the start of treatment. Many people experience hair loss, but the amount varies from person to person. The second most frequently reported side effect is skin irritation. The skin around the ears and scalp may become dry, itchy, red, or tender. Fatigue, hearing problems, nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, memory or speech problems, headaches, and sometimes convulsions are a few other side effects of radiation to the brain region.
Can radiation get rid of a brain tumor?
Radiation therapy uses intense beams of energy to kill cancer cells. It helps control the growth of some types of brain tumors. In some cases, it can shrink the tumor or destroy it. Radiotherapy can cure some types of small, benign, or very slow-growing (low-grade) brain tumors. For brain tumors that are more aggressive, large, or diffuse, radiotherapy is more likely to shrink and/or temporarily halt the growth of cancer rather than cure it. In some clinical trials, the overall survival rates were 83% and 69% for patients with methylated tumors and 56% and 38% for those with unmethylated tumors at 2 and 3 years, respectively.
