If you’ve been diagnosed with breast cancer, you’ll find safe, effective treatment here. Our expert physicians will create a personalized treatment plan designed to target your tumor, which may include surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy or a combination of these treatments.
Proton therapy for breast cancer is a highly precise form of radiation treatment that enables our team to deliver a targeted dose of radiation to your tumor, while limiting radiation to the surrounding, healthy tissue. Proton therapy can help reduce the risk of complications, including the possibility of secondary cancers, cardiac damage or healthy lung exposure due to unnecessary radiation.
Breast cancers we treat with proton therapy:
- Early-stage and locally advanced breast cancers (up to stage 3)
- Ductal carcinoma in-situ (DCIS)
- Inflammatory breast cancer
- Recurrent breast cancer
- Triple-negative breast cancer
