Proton therapy is a type of external beam radiation that targets the prostate cancer tumors with a stream of protons (small positively charged particles) instead of X-rays; it, therefore requires more specialized equipment.
This type of radiation kills prostate cancer cells by altering the genetic material that controls how cells grow and divide with little damage to nearby tissues; although, healthy cells in the beam’s path are also damaged. At the present, despite the 10- to 20-fold increase in cost of the equipment, proton therapy has not been shown to be more effective than IMRT in tumor control.
If you have been recently diagnosed with prostate cancer, it’s critical to personally research prostate cancer treatment options to make an informed decision that is best for you and your family. And, with few exceptions, your first treatment method gives you the best chance for success.
ProstRcision® has high documented disease-free survival rates using the strictest definition (PSA < 0.2 ng/ml, 10 years after treatment). Equally important, this unique approach to eradicating prostate cancer preserves sexual function and maintains urinary control for the vast majority of men. The documented 10-year and 15-year high disease-free survival rates, combined with no cutting of the prostate, and very few side effects are why over 17,000 men from all 50 states, and over 40 countries have chosen ProstRcision.
