Disadvantages: Traumatic larger, and some parts of surgery is difficult, not valid for sub-clinical metastases, in the treatment there are some limitations, can not completely eliminate the cancer cells, cancer cells in a certain period of time will be long.

Advantages and disadvantages of radiotherapy cancer treatment:

Regional sensitivity of cancer.

the use of multi-beam radiation caused by the focus of high-energy cross-killing cancer cells, radiation, strong anti-mitotic cells, is an important means of cancer treatment for many cancers can produce temporary control of the results.
