How often can you have radiotherapy? Do too many normal, good cells die if you do it too often?

In brief: Llimited

When a person receives radiation therapy to a specific site it usually means they have received the maximum dose the tissue at that site can tolerate.
Therefore additional radiation to that site (re-radiation) is usually not offered.
