Radiation therapy (RT) is an integral component of the multidisciplinary management of a variety of endocrine neoplasia. Typical indications include unresectable or recurrent, benign or malignant tumors of the pituitary, thyroid and parathyroid glands. Typical doses administered over 5–7 weeks for benign tumors and malignant tumors are 45–50 Gy and 60–70 Gy, respectively. RT techniques employed in these treatments include 3D conformal, intensity modulated, stereotactic, and proton radiotherapy. RT is also beneficial in palliating bone metastases and preventing recurrence after complete resection of high-risk thyroid or parathyroid cancers, with adjacent organ invasion, nodal metastases and/or positive resection margins.
