In Spain, we have international reference centres and leading specialists in cancer treatment. We currently collaborate with medical centres that work with Proton Therapy, a technique that offers greater precision and less toxicity.
Proton Therapy allows treatment to be limited to the region affected by the cancer without irradiating the surrounding healthy tissue. As a result, the treatment has no adverse effects. It is particularly suitable for the treatment of hard-to-reach tumours or cancers located near high-risk organs.
Unlike conventional radiotherapy, its lower toxicity allows higher doses to be delivered to the tumour when needed, and thus greater local control of the cancer can be achieved with minimal unnecessary exposure of normal tissues to scattered radiation.
