Radiation therapy involves the use of high-energy beams or radioactive seeds to eliminate tumors.
Radiation has been successfully used to cure prostate cancer for over 30 years. Recent advances have significantly improved cure rates and greatly reduced toxicity.
The most common types of radiation therapy used for prostate cancer include external beam radiotherapy and brachytherapy.
The Prostate Cancer Experts group offers the most advanced forms of radiotherapy, either alone or in combination with hormone therapy to cure all stages of prostate cancer.
