Hello, have just had proton therapy for uveal melanoma and even though the doctors said that it has prove to be very effective, I have to say that have my doubts about it. What is this treatment really about and why they say that it is better than the other therapies?

It is all about the precise targeting and destroying the tumor tissue. Even thought it is based on the same theory as the X rays therapy, photon treatment causes much less damage, or sometimes even no damage at all to the surrounding, healthy tissue, which is a great thing. And this means that higher dose of radiation may be applied without fear of side effects.
