The majority of breast cancer patients will require radiation therapy at some time during the course of their disease. An estimated 30–50% of all radiation treatments are of palliative nature, either to alleviate symptoms or prophylactic to prevent deterioration of quality of life due to locally progressive disease. Radiotherapy is a locally effective tool, and typically causes no systemic and mostly mild acute/no side effects in most of the cases.
This patient Ms X, age 84 years with Cancer in her right breast with bone metastasis was treated with palliative radiation treatment. After few sessions, the condition shows positive degeneration with remarkable change in the quality of life of the patient.
