S. since 1990 with success comparable to all other options, but with minimal side effects. Proton therapy is Medicare and FDA approved, and may be used for prostate and other non-metastasized cancers. The book explains how to deal with the shock of cancer diagnosis and become an empowered patient. It includes a synopsis of the major treatment alternatives, and a detailed description of proton beam therapy. Robert J. Marckini, author of "You Can Beat Prostate Cancer..." says Prostate Cancer Meets The Proton Beam is a nuts-and-bolts journal for the prostate cancer victim, as well as his spouse and family members. If you are a recently diagnosed patient, it will answer most of your questions."
