Precise Radiation Therapy for Testicular Cancer
Testicular cancer is the most common solid tumor in young men. Because it strikes so early, clinicians must be especially careful when using radiation to avoid exposing other organs, such as the bladder, small intestine, stomach and prostate.
The most advanced facility of its kind in Southern California, Scripps Proton Therapy Center uses precision radiation to help overcome these challenges. Protons deposit their highest radiation doses directly in tumors, reducing exposure to other organs and tissues. As a result, some patients with testicular cancer can experience fewer side effects and a lowered risk of secondary cancers.
The clinical and scientific teams have more than 90 years of combined experience treating patients with proton therapy. Learn more about the experts at the center.
From diagnosis and treatment to navigation and support, Scripps offers comprehensive cancer care. Learn how proton therapy further complements these services.
