Facts about Pelvic Radiation Disease in the UK

Each year around 20,000 patients are treated by radiotherapy (sometimes in combination with chemotherapy) to the pelvic region because they are diagnosed with cancer.  50% of these patients will experience long term effects many months after the radiotherapy treatment has finished.

20-40% of these patients suffer serious side effects causing severe medical and social problems.
