What is brachytherapy?

Brachytherapy is a form of radiotherapy which is used to treat cancer. It is often known as internal radiotherapy and involves introducing a radioactive source into the body, either within or close to the tumour, enabling precise and highly targeted treatment delivery. It is particularly suitable for men with localised prostate cancer or in cases where there may be early spread of a cancer into nearby tissues.

There are two forms of brachytherapy for prostate cancer, both of which involve the injection of radioactive implants into the prostate gland.
