Breast

Because the breast is located in close proximity to the heart and lungs, proton therapy holds distinct advantages over standard radiation therapy due to the ability to limit the radiation dose to the breast tissue. Standard radiation therapy deposits radiation into both the heart and lung, increasing the chance for short- and long-term side effects including secondary cancers.
