External Beam Radiation Therapy (EBRT)

External beam radiation therapy (EBRT) uses strong X-rays, radioactive seeds and particles to destroy, damage and shrink cancer cells and tumors. It is used to stop cancer from returning, relieve symptoms brought on by tumors and treat cancers that cannot be taken out with surgery. External beam radiation aims the X-rays, particles or seeds at the tumor from outside the body.
