Proton Therapy for Breast Cancer

Targeted Treatment for Breast Cancer

Scripps Proton Therapy Center provides the most advanced radiation treatments for breast cancer in Southern California. Proton therapy allows for precise treatments by tightly focusing radiation on diseased tissue and reducing doses to adjacent, healthy tissue. This accuracy often allows oncologists to limit radiation to neighboring structures, such as the heart, lungs and bone. As a result, proton therapy may reduce the risk of side effects and secondary tumors from radiation.
