Breast cancer is one of the most common types of cancer used by the radiation oncologists. The breast cancer is a form of cancer that develops in the tissues of the breast. Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women. Radiotherapy is mostly used as a treatment for cancer. It has proven to be an effective treatment for different forms of cancer since it can be used in combination with chemotherapy, surgery and immunotherapy. Breast cancer radiotherapy uses ionizing radiation to destroy or kill the malignant tumors by reducing the damage to the normal tissue. Breast cancer radiotherapy plays an important role in the management of all stages of breast cancer including locally advanced disease and early staged diseases. According to American Institutes of Cancer Research statistics report, an estimate of two million new cases were recorded in 2018. Breast cancer radiotherapy destroy the undetectable cancer cells and thus minimizes the risk of cancer in the affected breast.
The global breast cancer radiotherapy market witness to register significant growth in the breast cancer radiotherapy market due to increasing prevalence of cancer, rising adoption rate of radiotherapy which will foster the growth of the market. Another factor adding to the growth of breast cancer radiotherapy is rising adoption of radiotherapy procedures in treatment of cancer. Moreover, advancement in research and development for breast cancer treatment is also driving the growth of the breast cancer radiotherapy market. However, there occurs certain limitations in breast cancer radiotherapy market. Factors such as increase in cost of radiotherapy and the breast cancer radiotherapy side effects may hinder the growth of the breast cancer radiotherapy market. Moreover, skilled professional is necessary to operate the radiotherapy treatment. Lack of trained professional may hamper the growth of the breast cancer radiotherapy market. Inspite of this drawbacks, with the advancement of technology, there seems to occur changes in the breast cancer radiotherapy treatment. Standard radiotherapy deliver radiation to the entire breast but currently, accelerated partial breast irradiation delivers radiation only to the targeted area and thus minimizing the occurrence of side effects. In addition to this, 3D conformal external beam radiation therapy also uses the standard radiation therapy but it targets only the tumor bed. All these new innovations in breast cancer radiotherapy is likely to propel the growth of the market.
