Does radiation treatment hurt?

In general, no. Radiation treatment delivery is entirely a passive process. The length of treatment depends on the particular case, but usually the patient can expect to remain in the same position for approximately 20 minutes, which may cause some discomfort. Special devices are made for each patient to assist in holding still and minimizing discomfort. The radiation itself cannot be felt - just like with an x-ray, you won’t feel a thing.
