Hence, the radiation through the therapy destroys the cancerous cells and ensures that the adjacent regions are safe. RAI therapy may show various side effects like dry mouth, pain in the neck, or changes in taste or smell. The procedure of RAI therapy is determined by an oncologist and depends on a number of factors that include the stage of cancer, the intensity of the disease, and the patient’s overall health condition.
