Radiotherapy for malignant conditions
Radiotherapy is an important pillar in the therapy of cancer conditions
Two thirds of all patients with locally limited malignant tumours can presently be healed. Radiotherapy is responsible for about half of these healing successes.
Besides surgery and medication treatment radiotherapy is one of the three great pillars in the therapy of cancer conditions. It can be applied on its own or in combination the other two procedures.
Which procedures are used for the therapy of a cancer condition and whether a combination using other therapeutic strategies is useful, is being decided within the framework of interdisciplinary discussions and conferences – i.e. the exchange of opinion amongst all experts, involved in the condition of the patient. They will then issue a recommendation that is discussed with the patient in detail.
As a long-established institution in the west of Munich we are part of a comprehensive network of experienced cooperations partners », with whom we form a well-coordinated team in the therapy of cancer conditions.
We take care that the patient will always be in good hands and will receive optimal treatment in accordance with international and national maximum standards and guidelines. We will treat all cancer conditions that are accessible with radiotherapy.
The following cancer conditions that in general respond well to radiotherapy are:
- Carcinoma of the breast
- Carcinoma of the prostrate
- Carcinoma of the lung
- Ear, nose and throat tumours
- Carcinoma of the rectum
- Carcinoma of the anal canal
- Gynaecological tumours

- Carcinoma of the pancreas
- Carcinoma of the thyroid glands
- Liver tumours
- Carcinoma of the bile ducts

Whether it makes sense for us to treat a cancer condition is clarified in the context of a physician-patient conversation » for which we allocate a lot of time.
