Study shows radiotherapy can lift stroke risk
(08-12 17:37)

A Chinese University study has found that nose and throat cancer patients who have received radiotherapy have a higher risk of stroke about 10 years after the treatment.
Researchers said radiotherapy was effective in curing nose and throat cancer, but narrowed the arteries in the neck.
They said a new treatment to insert a small mesh to open up clogged blood vessels could reduce the stroke risk.
Dr Thomas Leung, an Associate Professor of Neurology, said it was a relatively non-invasive procedure and could be done more than once. --RTHK
