Proton therapy is a form of cancer treatment that uses protons via radiation to cure cancer. Also known as proton beam therapy, it is among the most reliable and efficient type of methods for the treatment of cancer.

As we know, a proton is a positively charged particle. When accelerated and taken to a state of high energy, protons have the ability to destroy cancer cells. Physicians have been known to use proton therapy exclusively or combining it with other treatments like chemotherapy, immunotherapy, and surgery. Standard radiation therapies have evolved and improved over the decades and have proven themselves effective, in cure and control of many cancers.
