About the offer

In some rare cases, surgeons can't remove ovarian tumors or use radiation and chemotherapy for specific reasons (e. g. , a lousy patient's condition, advanced stage of cancer, or massive involvement of surrounding organs and tissues). In these cases, brachytherapy could be an excellent treatment option that might help to improve the patient's condition. Doctors implant a tiny radioactive pallet inside the ovarian tumor during brachytherapy. As a result, the tumor's cells get damaged due to radiation exposure that prevents them from growing and spreading. However, the radioactive seeds might remain inside the patient's body until he gets better and can receive other treatment methods. In some cases, brachytherapy might stay on the site for the rest of the patient's life without significant harm. It isn't the most frequent treatment for ovarian cancer, but it shows excellent results for patients with recurrent ovarian cancer. Up to 87% of patients reported that their symptoms were less intense after this treatment. Oncologists might use many different sources of radiation during brachytherapy, including cesium 137, iridium 192, iodine 125, and gold 198.
