Breast Cancer: Prone Breast Radiation Therapy

Prone breast radiation therapy is a special type of whole breast radiation therapy. For prone breast radiation, a woman lies on her stomach. Radiation is aimed at the affected breast through an opening in the table. This external radiation option may reduce radiation exposure to your lungs or heart, and it may be particularly helpful for some women with larger breasts.
