Swelling, bruising, bleeding, or soreness and discomfort at the site of the radiation delivery are possible Brachytherapy side effects. Brachytherapy for prostate cancer or gynecologic cancers might cause transient urinary symptoms like incontinence or pain when urinating. Additionally, diarrhoea, constipation, and a little amount of rectal bleeding can result with these tumours’ brachytherapy. Erectile dysfunction can occasionally result after prostate brachytherapy.
