Radiotherapy is ... Your best ally in the fight against cancer

Treatment to destroy cancer cells uses a form of energy known as ionizing radiation.

The patient is radiated with the energy in the tumor area, damaging the genetics of cancer cells by preventing the continued reproduction. With this, the tumors stop growing, can reduce its size or disappear completely.

About 80% of cancer patients undergo this treatment and its purpose is reflected in three aspects: used as an element in the fight against cancer by destroying cancer cells, prevent the birth of cancer cells, and as a palliative against the pain, making the tumor shrink.

Treatment like this, takes between 5 and 7 weeks, so within that period, the dose of radiation concentrates better in cancer cells and damage to healthy tissue is minimized.

Because there are different types of cancer, various types of radiation, each one of them is used depending on the circumstances as each patient's health:

  1. Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy: allows higher levels of radiation concentrated to the tumor, and lower intensity are directed to areas where the tissues are healthy.
  2. Three-dimensional radiation therapy: the doctors use MRI and CT to create a representation of the shape of the tumor in three dimensions and using a specialized computer system, they make radiation on the tumor more precisely.
  3. Conventional radiation therapy: radiation is emitted in two dimensions (length and width), with the same intensity and in a limited range of angles. Is most suitable in most cases.

This service can be found in our Médica Sur Tlalpan facilities as part of the Comprehensive Cancer Centre.
