As part of external beam radiation therapy, you will have radiation marks, or tattoos, put on your skin. These marks are used by the radiation therapists to guide precise body positioning, critical to ensure cancer cells are being effectively targeted. The radiation marks aide in keeping you perfectly aligned throughout the course of your treatment.Topics and Subtopics: Cancer,Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery
