No other cancer faces such a wide range of opinions. Large international studies have shown that radiotherapy has at least the same cure rates for prostate cancer in the early stages and superior cure rates in advanced diesase compared to surgery.
The international Prostate Cancer Results Study Group (PCRSG) has developed a unique decision support tool to compare the cure rates of all modern therapies, depending on the risk profile of the tumor. This is based on a scientific analysis of all relevant studies on localized prostate cancer in more than 52,000 patients.
ProtecT study shows: Patients after prostate surgery suffer most from the consequences of treatment
International Meta Study proofs: Brachytherapy at least equivalent or superior to Radical Surgery.
Latest results of the two-year SPIRIT study show clear advantages for Brachytherapy compared to Radical Surgery
Study by the British Columbia Cancer Agency confirms: high efficacy combined with very low side effects makes brachytherapy treatment of choice for localized prostate cancer.
In benign prostate enlargement, treatment with modern laser techniques not only leads to fewer complications than transurethral resection (TURP) but also has a significantly lower risk of bleeding.
