In brief: Radiotherapy

It depends on type of cancer and stage of disease.
If radiation is being used for palliation then it is short course, if it is being used for treatment then usually 35-42 treatment. It also depends on location of cancer.

In brief: That depends

That depends on the area of the body, the amount of radiation needed, and the resistance of the tumor.
