Proton therapy to treat genito-urinary cancers

Although prostate cancer is most frequent in men worldwide, traditional treatment carries the risk of serious toxicity due to the proximity of important nerves, the rectum and the bladder. By targeting the tumor, proton therapy can decrease the risk of damage to surrounding organs. It lowers the risk of damaging healthy tissue and provides patients with better quality of life. Gynecological cancers such as cervical, endometrial, uterine, vaginal and vulvar cancer can also be good indications for proton therapy. As it allows for higher doses of radiation to be delivered to the tumor without damaging surrounding healthy tissue and organs, proton therapy can lead to fewer short- and long-term side effects and reduce the impact on urinary and bowel function compared to conventional radiation therapy. Protons may also help spare hormone function in younger women by preserving the ovaries.
