In brief: No

Radiation can be used on any part of the body.
What differs is the dose that can be used. Different tissues have different tolerances and so some parts of the body can be treated to higher doses of radiation than others.

In brief: No

Radiation can be given to any area.
However tolerance or limitation of the tissues are different and the desired benefit may not be achieved if the location is close to very sensitive areas.
