    Internal radiation (Brachytherapy)


    I became part of a study at the hospital where I had my radiation. The tumor had to be 3 mm or smaller. They radiated me 2 times a day for 5 days. Then I see the radiation doctor several times a year for pictures, then doctors track the progress of patients in the study for 5 yrs.

    Minimal Side Effects: Strongly Agree
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Strongly Agree
