The neutron is
subatomic particles with no electrical charge. The neutron’s
atomic mass is slightly greater than that of a proton.
The proton and the neutron make up the nucleus of an
atom and, when not bound to the atom’s nucleus,
the neutron is unstable. Neutron beam radiation therapy
is another form of prostate cancer radiation therapy.
Neutron beam radiation therapy however has been associated
with a wider ranger of adverse side effects to the surrounding
tissue. A few centers in the United States are investigating
the benefits of this form of prostate cancer treatment.
