Palliative radiation therapy for gynecological cancers

General

Symptom-directed palliative radiation therapy can be given for tumors/metastases that cause pain, bleeding, secretion, compression, bowel or airway stenosis, etc. 

Radiation therapy should be offered liberally for local problems. Uncontrolled central pelvic tumors often cause bothersome side effects. To achieve local control, brachytherapy is used, also for metastatic disease. 

Indications

  • Symptom-causing recurrence and metastases from gynecological cancer. Both squamous epithelial carcinomas and adenocarcinomas are often radiosensitive.

Goal

  • Palliative treatment.
