When you have radiotherapy to improve symptoms, the side effects are not usually too troublesome.
Radiotherapy can make you feel tired. This sometimes lasts for a few weeks after treatment finishes. Other side effects depend on the area of your body being treated and how much radiotherapy you have.
Always tell your nurse or radiographer about any side effects. There are usually ways in which they can be treated or managed. Side effects stop or improve gradually when treatment finishes.
