At higher doses radiation therapy kills cancer cells or slows their growth by damaging their DNA .Cancer cells whose DNA is damaged beyond repair stop dividing .When the damaged cells die , they are broken down and removed by the body .
Radiation therapy does not kill cancer cells right away .It takes days or weeks of treatment before DNA is damaged enough for cancer cells to die. Then , cancer cells keep dying for weeks or months after radiation therapy ends.
