Who is indicated for treatment?
Proton therapy is used in the world for many types of oncological pathologies. And it often turns out to be the only way out for patients.
Firstly, proton beam treatment does not require surgical intervention, which makes this method ideal for inoperable tumors. Proton beam treatment is suitable for patients who, for health reasons, will not be able to undergo surgery. Or for those who, for one reason or another, refuse abdominal surgery.
Secondly, the high accuracy of cancer cell damage combined with the most sparing effect on healthy organs and normal tissues make proton therapy an indispensable method in cases where the tumor lies dangerously close to such important organs as the brain, heart, spine.
Thirdly, proton therapy gives excellent results in dense tumors with defined boundaries, that is, in cases where the cancer has not spread to other parts of the body.
Fourth, the gentle effect on healthy cells and the absence of side effects allow us to consider proton therapy the most appropriate method for the treatment of children.
