My father has been diagnosed with brain cancer and his oncologist thinks that he is a candidate for radiotherapy. I know that this kind of treatment has side effects and I would like to find out which ones those are. Can anyone provide me with more info? I would really appreciate it.

Hi, there. I am sorry to hear that. Radiotherapy indeed can cause side effects. It can be used alone or in combination with chemotherapy. The head is the one that is radiated here. Hair loss is the first side effect. Feeling sick is also something that patients complain about. Your father will feel tired. Sometimes symptoms can even get worse. Consult your father’s oncologist for further info.
