Proton Beam Cancer Therapy

By

Mayo Clinic is just in the beginning stages of building its new 400 million dollar Proton Beam Cancer Therapy Centers in both Rochester and Arizona. But we're learning that there's still some controversy when it comes to using proton therapy on prostate cancer…"Radiation treatments are very effective at treating cancers..." said Dr. Robert Foote back on September 16, 2011. That was Dr. Richard Foote, the chair of Mayo's Department of Radiation Oncology back in September. Today he issued a statement in response to the UNC study which basically agreed with it saying that proton treatment for prostate cancer requires more research.
