External Beam Radiation.

High-energy X-rays are focused at the prostate tumors to destroy them. The painless radiation is given in short bursts so that normal cells have time to recover. However, some healthy cells around the prostate may also be affected.  This treatment requires treatments 5 days a week for 7-8 weeks. Each appointment lasts about 10-30 minutes.
