Cervical cancer is most common gynaecological malignancy in Nepal. In this disease, treatment is incomplete without brachytherapy. Brachytherapy enables our physicians to tailor highly precise radiation doses directly to tumor in cervix while minimizing exposure to nearby healthy tissue. Patients with endometrial cancer or vaginal cancer also benefit from brachytherapy.
In this technique , needles are implanted inside the tumor and radiation is delivered from inside.It is very focussed and highly effective treatment modality for cancers like head and neck, sarcoma ,breast etc.
