Pelvic radiation disease

Pelvic radiation disease (PRD) is a set of symptoms that can affect women who have undergone radiotherapy treatment for abdominal or pelvic cancers. This may include cervical cancer or uterine cancer. Having such treatment on this part of the body can treat the cancer present, however, it can also produce longer-term symptoms and side effects, such as diarrhoea or constipation, rectal bleeding, bloating, abdominal pain, increased urgency for passing urine, difficulty during sexual intercourse or difficulty passing urine. Symptoms can range in severity.
