HOW DOES PROTON THERAPY WORK?

Proton therapy at Quironsalud Center

Proton therapy uses protons instead of conventional X-rays. This method of treatment is 60% more accurate, and the tumor reduces in size faster. As a result, proton therapy has less impact on surrounding tissues, fewer side effects and is safer to use on children.

Many studies have confirmed that proton therapy has a positive effect on the cancer patients' quality of life.

The procedure at Quironsalud Proton Therapy Center takes 15-30 minutes, and the average course includes up to 5 sessions. It does not require hospitalization and the patient can immediately return to the usual daily routine.

Proton therapy does not cause common side effects such as vomiting and hair loss. The most frequent complaints among the patients are general weakness, redness and flaking of the skin, and dryness or swelling.

Compared to prostatectomy, which causes complications in 28.6% of patients, for proton therapy, this figure is only 1%.
