Radiation Therapy for Vulvar Cancer

World leaders in new approaches to radiation therapy for vulvar cancer.

When vulvar cancer has spread, or metastasized, radiation therapy may be used. It may also be used to destroy any cancer cells that remain after surgery. 

Radiation therapy damages the DNA of cancer cells so the cells stop growing and die. It may take weeks of treatment before the cancer cells begin dying. After radiation ends, the cancer cells may continue dying for months. The dead cells are broken down and eliminated from the body.
