This article was originally published in Clinica
A US study has fuelled the debate over the best way to manage localised advanced prostate cancer after showing that men with the disease are more likely to survive if they undergo initial radiotherapy than opt for a watchful waiting policy. In an analysis of data from around 1,500 patients, a team, led by Dr Mack Roach of the University of California, San Francisco, found that the radiotherapy group had a greater chance of surviving 10 years compared with the watchful waiting group. The study appears in the March edition of The Journal of Urology.
