Prostate Cancer Meets the Proton Beam

by Fuller Jones

Prostate Cancer Meets the Proton Beam Synopsis

Proton Beam Therapy is an advanced cancer treatment based on the elegant physics of the proton. It is not well known, because there are currently only five hospitals in the U.S. that have the complex equipment to administer it. Protons have been used for cancer treatment in the U. S. since 1990 with success comparable to all other options, but with minimal side effects. This treatment is FDA approved and may be used for prostate and many other cancers if not metastasized. This book provides the author's experiences in dealing with the shock of cancer diagnosis, and in searching for a treatment. The book contains valuable information about becoming an informed patient. It includes a synopsis of the major treatment alternatives, and a detailed description of proton beam therapy. Robert J. Marckini, author of You Can Beat Prostate Cancer. says: Prostate Cancer Meets The Proton Beam is a nuts-and-bolts journal for the prostate cancer victim, as well as his spouse and family members.
