Radiation oncology, also called radiotherapy or radiation therapy, is a major part of cancer care. Most people will receive some form of radiation during their course of cancer treatment. Radiotherapy effectively treats cancer by using high-energy beams of radiation to pinpoint and destroy cancerous cells. That means the radiation is focused on the affected area or tumor while sparing the surrounding healthy tissues and organs.
