Radiation Therapy — Conditions We Treat

  • Leukemia is cancer that affects white blood cells, which grow in bone marrow and help fight infection. Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) prevents lymphoblasts, an immature type of white blood cell, from developing into mature lymphocytes. ALL cells accumulate and crowd out healthy blood cells.
  • Cancer of the bones can either travel to bone from other organs (metastatic bone cancer), or it can begin in the cells of the bone itself (primary bone cancer).
  • A brain tumor is an abnormal growth of tissue in the brain. Brain tumors can be cancerous (malignant) or noncancerous (benign).
  • Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women. It can develop in several locations, including the milk duct (the tube that carries milk to the nipple) and the milk lobule (where milk is produced).
  • Cervical cancer is abnormal cell growth that begins in the lower part of a woman’s uterus (the cervix).
  • Colorectal cancer develops in the colon or rectum, two sections of the large intestine. Most colorectal cancers begin as polyps, or small lumps, that slowly turn into cancer over time.
  • Head and neck tumors are those that grow in the nose, sinuses, mouth (oral cavity), throat (pharynx), voice box (larynx), salivary glands, lymph nodes in the neck, thyroid gland or parathyroid glands. They can be cancerous or noncancerous (benign).
  • Hodgkin lymphoma is a cancer of the white blood cells, which play a key role in the immune system.
  • When cancer starts in the tissue of the liver it is referred to as primary liver cancer. When cancer has spread (or metastasized) from another organ into the liver, it is referred to as secondary liver cancer or metastatic liver cancer. In the U.S., metastatic liver cancer is more common than primary liver cancer.
  • Most lung cancer begins in the cells that line the bronchi, the two large tubes that carry air from the trachea down into the lungs.
  • Non-Hodgkin lymphoma is cancer that starts in cells called lymphocytes, a type of white blood cell that helps the body fight infection.
  • Prostate cancer is a cancer that forms in the prostate, a gland in a man’s reproductive system. It is typically a slow-growing cancer that most often occurs in older men.
  • Skin cancer is the uncontrolled growth of abnormal skin cells.
  • Soft tissue sarcomas are cancerous tumors that begin in the muscle, fat, nerves, tendons, blood vessels or connective tissues. Most are found in an arm or leg, or the abdomen (stomach) area.
  • Trigeminal neuralgia is a nerve disorder that causes excruciating pain frequently described as a lightning strike or electric shock to the face.
