Radiation and your Skin
Going through cancer treatment is a challenging process. Radiation therapy has some unpleasant side effects and maintaining healthy skin throughout treatment can be difficult. It is important to be proactive in maintaining the health of your skin before, during and after treatment. Interruption of treatment is sometimes caused by acute radiation reactions called radiation dermatitis.
Radiation dermatitis is one of the most common side effects of radiotherapy. It is estimated that approximately 95 percent of patients receiving radiotherapy experience adverse skin effects https://pubmed.ncbi.
Every effort must be made to ensure that these reactions are managed to reduce the risk of treatment delay. This requires proactive support from appropriate healthcare professionals to ensure that the reactions are minimized. Written guidance to patients at the start of treatment facilitates the recognition and management of early reactions. Patients should have their symptoms treated early, before they become troublesome and lead to interruption of their radiotherapy.
