    Nearly two-thirds of all cancer patients will receive radiation therapy during their illness.For most cancer types treated with radiation therapy, at least 75% of the patients are treated with the intent to cure the cancer, rather than control the growth or relieve symptoms like pain. 7 out of 10 cancer patients will receive RT, ot of which 75% with a curative intendSource: www.astro.org
