Also known as: proton beam therapy.
Proton therapy is a form of radiation therapy for cancer that offers highly targeted treatment with fewer risks of side effects. It’s a potential treatment for many different forms of cancer.
Proton therapy requires the patient to lie on a table while a machine delivers proton beams to the area of the body with cancer. Patients may require treatment five days per week for a period of three or more weeks depending on the nature and severity of their cancer.
