Proton Therapy for Prostate Cancer

Proton Therapy for Prostate Cancer 1200x375

Advanced Radiation Treatment for Prostate Cancer

Located in the pelvis, surrounded by other sensitive organs, the prostate poses a great challenge for radiation oncologists, who must target the tumors while minimizing doses to surrounding, healthy tissue.

The most advanced facility of its kind in Southern California, Scripps Proton Therapy Center uses precise radiation treatments to help overcome these challenges. Protons deposit their highest radiation directly in tumors, reducing exposure to healthy organs and tissues.
