    It’s an undeniable fact that cancer is one of the leading causes of death both in Malaysia and worldwide.


    HOWEVER, CANCER NEED NOT NECESSARILY BE A DEATH SENTENCE THESE DAYS

    There are numerous developments in the technology behind cancer screening that allows more precise cancer treatment and hence a greater potential for better treatment outcome.


    Many exciting developments have taken place in the field of radiation therapy, also called radiotherapy.


    Radiation therapy involves the use of high-powered X-rays and other types of radiation to disrupt the growth of a tumour.


    As a result, the tumour will eventually start to shrink.


    Depending on the type and severity of cancer, it can be used as a single form of cancer treatment.


    It can also be used alongside chemotherapy and other forms of cancer treatments. For example, after a surgery to remove a tumour, the patient may receive radiation therapy to eliminate any leftover cancer cells in their body.


    One significant development in radiation therapy is stereotactic radiosurgery, which is available in Malaysia.
