Oesophagus Cancer

For GI tract tumours, such as an oesphageal tumour, they often require a combination of radiation therapy and either chemotherapy or surgery, which can be difficult for the patient to tolerate.

In some cases, standard radiation isn’t a viable option for patients because it would cause too much damage to healthy tissues and organs near the tumour. For these patients, proton therapy can be an effective option.

Protons deposit more energy directly into the tumour significantly reducing the radiation dose to healthy tissues, so patients enjoy an overall better quality of life.

Benefits of Proton Therapy

  • Fewer side effects
  • Greater vitality during and after proton therapy
  • Better quality of life

What can proton therapy be used for:

  • Primary carcinoma of the oesophagus & gastroesophageal junction.
