Radiation damage happens in different structures, with each type reliant on the ionizing radiation, its entering capacity, the part of the body uncovered, the term and duration of presentation to ionizing radiation, and the total dose of ionizing radiation.
Radiation sickness or acute radiation syndrome, have manifestations coming about because of the serious irradiation of a huge section of the GI tract or segment of the bone marrow. Early symptoms of this condition include loss of or suppression of appetite, nausea, and vomiting after irradiation, trailed by a symptom-free period that goes on until the main period of the illness. In intestinal radiation sickness, there are stages. In particular, the fundamental stage is characterized by fever, stomach pain, and loose bowels. This leads to dehydration, prostration, and a deadly shocklike stage. The primary period of the hemopoietic form (that related to bone marrow) of the disease starts later (around 2–3 weeks after light), with symptoms such as fever, weakness, loss of hair, infection, and internal bleeding. At the point when harm and damage to the bone marrow is extreme, death may result from infection and profuse bleeding.
