Whether your doctor has recommended proton cancer treatment for breast, prostrate, or head or neck cancer, it is always important to face these appointments with a positive attitude. In fact, proton therapy for prostate cancer and other conditions always works better if a patient is able to find a way to stay positive. Positive attitudes and healthy attitudes and hospital waiting areas full of encouragement can go a long ways toward making sure that any patient is given an opportunity for the best possible outcome.

As doctors, scientists, and researchers continue to work toward the best solutions for patients, in fact, the one thing that patients can always bring to the table is their best self.

Know for its targeted approach, proton therapy studies have shown that prostate cancer patients treated using this method have a significantly reduced risk of impotence. In fact, 94% of men report that they remain sexually active after treatment. This targeted approach is also effective in other kinds of cancer as well. For instance, in breast cancer patients this means on average no radiation to the heart and an average of 50% less radiation to the lung as compared with conventional radiation treatment options.
