In brief: Its treatment for Ca

It is one form of treatment for Cancer.

Your doctor will explain it before they do the treatment ...simply ask that you want your questions answered.
Typically it involves a machine(like an X-ray machine) which would be used to deliver rays from the machine over to your body. You can not see or feel these rays. They do not hurt...the whole treatment last a few minutes. Nothing to be scared about.
