The doctor recommends proton therapy for the management of tumors. Proton therapy is advanced radiation therapy. It is used for managing benign and cancerous tumors. Because of its fewer side effects than conventional radiations, there is an increasing trend in using these radiations. Proton therapy finds its importance in managing various types of cancers, including lung cancer, liver cancer, esophageal cancer, breast cancer, brain tumor, spinal tumor, and sarcoma.
There are various advantages of proton therapy over traditional radiation therapy. In proton therapy, the doctors have better control over the energy transmission into the cancerous cells.
