Palliative Radiation Treatment of Breast Cancer


Palliative radiation therapy for breast cancer is administered to reduce symptoms from metastases.

Radiation therapy is offered liberally for local symptoms.

There must be a definite connection between the actual metastasis(es) and the symptom(s).


  • Metastases which cause for example pain, pressure symptoms, airway obstruction, bleeding, and secretion.


  • To relieve painful or uncomfortable symptoms.
