Cancer is currently one of the major causes of death. So far we have limited success in treating this deadly disease. In the recent past, use of hadrons is growing becoming popular in treating cancer using conventional as well as laser driven accelerators. Our recent works encompasses that. In our current talk we will throw light on accelerators including LHC and their use through hadron therapy. We will particularly focus on the progress made so far.
