What to Expect After Radiation Therapy for Bile Duct Cancer

Radiation affects both normal cells and cancer cells. This means it can cause side effects. What they are depends on what part of your body is treated and what type of radiation you receive. If you have internal radiation therapy, you will be less likely to have side effects. These are some common side effects of external radiation:

  • skin irritation

  • fatigue

  • nausea

These often go away when your treatment ends. Always tell your doctor or nurse about side effects you have. They may be able to help ease them.
