Lung Cancer

Proton therapy is now available for lung cancer, the most diagnosed cancer worldwide in men and women.

Traditionally, radiation, or a combination of radiation and chemotherapy, have been used to treat lung cancer. Unfortunately when lungs are exposed to unnecessary radiation it can lead to unwanted side effects such as:

  • Breathing difficulties
  • Swallowing problems
  • Persistent cough
  • Fatigue
  • Loss of appetite
  • Weight loss
  • Increase risk of ischaemic heart disease

However, proton therapy is less invasive than other conventional lung cancer treatments, resulting in minimal side effects to the patients.

What we can treat

  • Non-small cell bronchogenic carcinoma

By reducing radiation exposure to surrounding healthy tissues, the dose of radiation to the tumour can be increased when using proton beam radiation, increasing the chance of a cure.
