Proton Therapy for Prostate Cancer
Proton therapy has significant potential benefits for prostate cancer treatment. With proton therapy, physicians can target the tumor with high doses of radiation without damaging nearby organs.
Because the prostate is located so close to the bladder, bowel, and reproductive organs, men receiving traditional x-ray radiation therapy for prostate cancer may experience side effects to urinary, bowel, and erectile function. In contrast, proton therapy stops at the site of the tumor. This means that the risk of side effects is significantly reduced.
