Is Proton Therapy Really Worthwhile?

A recent commentary was made by the Radiological Society about the value of Proton Therapy for Localized prostate cancer. They cited two recent studies in support of this treatment but neither of them offers very good proof that the treatment works as discussed in this video. The bottom line is that no study has shown Proton Therapy is as good or better than other forms of radiation. In addition, recent results show the side effects are not reduced either. Before considering this option, men should make sure they ask the right questions so they get all the facts.
