Radiation therapy is commonly used as one of the oldest and most effective ways to treat cancer. The principle on which radiation therapy works is that tumor cells cannot recover from radiation damage as fast as normal tissue. High-energy radiation damages the cells' deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) — the protein that carries the code controlling /science-and-technology/health-and-medicine/radiation-therapy. Purpose: The use of radiation therapy (RT) in consolidating oligometastatic prostate cancer (OPCa) is a rapidly evolving treatment paradigm. We review our institutional experience using metastasis-directed therapy in the definitive management of men with OPCa. Methods and materials: Patients with OPCa treated with definitive RT were ://   Radiation therapy may be given before, during, or after these other treatments to improve the chances that treatment will work.
