Common short-and long-term complications should be explained to the patient. Prognosis should be understood by the patient. Risks of anesthesia must be covered; it may be appropriate to ask the anesthetist to explain this aspect of risk directly. Counseling The surgeon should, if the patient is agreeable, discuss the procedure with the patient’s family or close friends.

Tumors, like normal tissues, also respond to X-irradiation at different rates. Tumors with a high proliferative activity and a high rate of cell loss diminish in size quickly, whereas more indolent tumors may take months to become smaller in size.

Some tumors that regress quickly may also recur quickly, whereas other tumors may remain detectable for weeks or even months after the end of radiotherapy and yet ultimately disappear and never recur.

The type of fluid required will vary —blood transfusion may be needed to replace intra-or post-operative loss.
