Patients can not see, smell, taste, hear or feel radiation treatment. The actual radiation treatments are very similar to getting an X-ray. A small number of patients have felt warmth or a tingling sensation in the treatment area, but they did not feel any pain or discomfort. When the machine is on there is no pain; however, an additive affect of many treatments over several weeks can lead to discomfort in the treatment area. Please see more under the side effects question. more
