Brachytherapy is Internal Radiotherapy where tubes are placed into the cancer itself. At our hospital, cancers of various organs are being treated with brachytherapy. Cancer of Cervix is usually treated with intra-cavitary brachytherapy. Skin cancer can be treated with Surface Mould Brachytherapy and surgery can be avoided.
