Interest in proton therapy has increased dramatically in the past couple of years, especially in the United States. The obvious physical benefits of protons are offset by the high costs. The promise of innovative new technologies to reduce the cost of proton therapy machines, however, combined with impressive results being accumulated, might make proton therapy not only a feasible alternative to conventional techniques for curative patients, but possibly the treatment of choice at some time in the not‐too‐distant future. This is the premise debated in this month's Point/Counterpoint.
