Side effects of Proton Therapy

  • Proton therapy has far fewer side effects than conventional radiation therapy because it
    targets tumour site with high precision and minimizes normal tissue irradiation.
  • However it has been found that side effects appear differently on different patients.
    Symptoms of its side effects may differ depending on cancer site, direction of radiation,
    and radiation dose.
  • It is important to discuss with your oncologist before the treatment and fully understand
    the possible side effects/adverse reactions and how to manage them when they actually
    appear.
