Proton therapy is an increasingly popular alternative for breast cancer treatment. It exposes the heart and lungs to significantly less radiation compared to conventional treatments, thereby reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease, lung scarring and even secondary malignancies. Proton therapy is particularly beneficial when the cancer develops in the left breast, close to the heart and lungs.
