Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Usually adenocarcinoma is associated with lymph node involvement means it spreads fast in the body. In cases when more than 1/3rd myometrium is involves which is seen in Stage Ic, Radiation therapy is warranted. This is standard oncologic treatment. She is on right path of treatment. Radiation will destroy the small spread tumor from her uterus. Hope she will recover soon. GOOD LUCK !!!1
