Radiotherapy is a specific treatment method for cancer that relies on radiation to kill malignant cells or shrink tumors. It relies on x-rays or proton radiation, which are illuminated inside or outside the body to damage the genetic material in cancerous cells and restrict them from growing and spreading further. It is carried out by radiation oncologists after conducting examinations and scans to detect the accurate treatment position. It can cure various types of cancers, including breast, cervical, prostate, kidney, liver, lung, brain, and thyroid cancer. It can be combined with other treatment procedures, such as chemotherapy, to destroy cancer cells.

Global Radiotherapy Market Trends:

At present, the increasing demand for radiotherapy, as it is an effective treatment method that relieves symptoms of advanced cancers, represents one of the key factors propelling the growth of the market. Besides this, the rising prevalence of cancer due to the adoption of unhealthy lifestyles and excessive smoking and consumption of alcohol are contributing to the growth of the market.
