Hi and welcome to Healthcare magic.Thank you for the query.
It seems like your doctor consider that there is a need for adjuvant radiotherapy and this is usually done when there is spreaded tumor or suspicous of it or as a prevention in highly invasive tumors. So i suggest to go through this and not to worry beause you need to do everything to prevent tumor recurence.
Wish you good health. Regards
