    External radiation

    Radiation

    The only draw back is you must go to the hospital 5 days a week for 6 weeks. However, you really get to know the staff and they make you feel so comfortable, you almost forget why you are there!

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