Radiosensitive tumours are tumours which respond well to radiotherapy.

Radiotherapy may be effective alone, or may require the addition of cytotoxic chemotherapy as in the more advanced stages of a Wilm's tumour and Hodgkin's disease.

This group includes:

  • malignant lymphomas
  • seminomas
  • medulloblastoma
  • neuroblastoma
  • Wilm's tumour
  • early cervical carcinoma
  • vaginal carcinoma
  • most head and neck tumours
