Abstract
A REVIEW ON PROTON THERAPY FOR VARIOUS CANCERS

Dr. R. Dhananjayan*

ABSTRACT

Proton therapy or proton beam therapy is a type of radiation therapy. It uses protons rather than x-rays to treat cancer. A proton is a positively charged particle. At high energy, protons can destroy cancer cells. This therapy can be used alone or it may be combined with x-ray radiation therapy, surgery, chemotherapy and / or immunotherapy. It is a type of external-beam radiation therapy, which painlessly delivers radiation through the skin from a machine outside the body. It is useful for treating tumors which have not spread and are near important parts of the body, i.e., cancers near the brain and spinal cord. It is also used for treating children because it lessens the chance of harming healthy, growing tissue. This review is briefly focussed on the applications of proton therapy on various cancers.

Keywords: proton therapy, proton beam therapy, cancer.
