The radiation is delivered to the cancer.
Each seed, which is the size of a grain of rice, is the tissue surrounding the tumor and where the radioactive iodine-125, palladium-103, or cesium-131 is most likely to recur.
The procedure is repeated twice a day.

The amount of radiation received by a family member is the same as the amount received on a long plane flight.
