UF Radiation Oncology
A pioneer in the field of radiation oncology, UF maintains one of the best academic radiation oncology programs in the country. Our department is committed to superb patient care and excellence in research, teaching, and leadership on the local, state, national, and international levels.
The treatment of cancer usually involves surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, or a combination of these methods.
Cancer cells grow by multiplying or dividing to make new tumor cells. Radiation therapy causes changes within a cancer cell to stop its development.
Cancer treatment may vary depending upon the type of cancer, the stage of cancer, and the goal of treatment.
