October is #BreastCancerAwarenessMonth 💕
Breast cancer is one of the most commonly treated diagnoses at the Prague Proton Therapy Center. Breast cancer doesn't only affect women, but it can also occur in men, although much less often. Breast cancer may be treated with proton therapy, a significantly safer option compared to standard irradiation. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at +44 (0) 1268 919 046 or info@ukprotontherapy.co.uk 🙂

Our doctors participated in the development of a new international study. The renowned International Journal of Radiation Oncology Biology Physics (IJROBP), published this study in August, under the direction of Dr. Yolanda Tseng of the University of Washington. The study concentrates on the results of proton therapy in relapsing/refractory lymphomas. Dr. Dědečková, who specialises in the treatment of lymphomas at the Prague Proton Therapy Center, contributed to the study with datas from patients who underwent treatment at our facility.
Due to the rapid course of lymphomas, therapy requires a more intensive treatment approach. The results of the study confirmed that thanks to the physical properties of protons, with proton therapy the radiation dose to the lungs is significantly minimised, thus reducing pulmonary toxicity and related side effects.

Tissues and organs in children are very sensitive to radiation exposure. Moreover, children are more prone to developing secondary tumours than adults. If we want to increase the child’s chance of healthy development also after treatment, it is vital to make every effort to prevent the adverse effects of radiation exposure. In this respect, proton therapy is of extraordinary benefit for them.

In order to select the optimal treatment, it is imperative to get comprehensive and comprehensible information. Ask not only about the most advanced treatment methods but also treatment-related side effects. They may significantly affect the quality of your life during and after treatment.
