MHL provides information, suggestions and introductions, but we are not doctors and we cannot give medical advice.
MHL (PPM Consult Ltd.) introduces patients to hospitals and treatment centres with the latest medical technologies, special expertise or where we believe the standards of care or medical equipment to be exceptional.
We do not arrange or provide diagnostic services or treatments ourselves and we shall not be responsible for the outcome of any treatment or for failure to diagnose or treat.
This is not an overview of all treatments for breast cancer, but we highlight here some advanced treatments which are not yet widely known.
We also introduce patients to hospitals and treatment centres in Europe and the USA where these breast cancer treatments may be obtained.
Proton or ion beam therapy
Proton therapy is a high-precision radiation treatment that targets a tumour whilst sparing healthy tissue around it, so making it safer and with far fewer side-effects.
Radiotherapy uses X-ray beams which pass through the body, affecting everything in their path, but proton beams behave very differently.
The protons are aimed at the tumour, depositing maximum energy at a precisely calibrated depth and then they do not pass beyond the target.
