In brief: There are many
Isotopes in use for cancer and benign disease treatment - the list goes from the original radium being re-tooled for prostate treatment to iodine isotopes, 131 for thyroid conditions and 125 as a sealed source for prostate brachytherapy.
Narrow your question and i can be very specific.
