In brief: Too many
Side effects depend the area of the body which is being radiated- dry mouth & mouth sores (oral cancers), diarrhea (pelvic radiation), shortness of breath (lung radiation), hair loss (brain radiation), stomach ulcers and bleeding (stomach radiation).
General side effects can include severe fatigue, low blood counts, skin rash and discoloration.
