News:CANCER – Radiotherapy causes it, too


Of the 13,000 patients who were treated with radiotherapy at one French clinic, 35 developed radiation-induced sarcomas (cancer of connective tissues such as bone or muscle), which appeared from three to 20 years after treatment.

Interestingly, the risk after radiation therapy increases with time (Cancer, 2005; 104: 856-63).
