What Is Proton Therapy?
Cancer treatments generally involve radiation therapy to eliminate or reduce cancerous growths. Proton therapy or proton beam therapy is a form of radiation therapy that specifically uses protons, not x-rays, to target cancer cells. This directed approach to radiation therapy exposes the cancer patient to less radiation than most other treatments, so it has been associated with fewer risks and side effects. This makes proton therapy highly popular among medical experts.
