New horizons for eliminating prostate cancer



Around 1 in 4 men with intermediate-risk prostate cancers opt for radiotherapy treatment, which has proven powerful in eliminating cancerous cells towards full remission. This webinar will bring together an expert and consumer panel to talk about existing and new treatments, including Focal Therapy, Brachytherapy, and MRI Linac.

The conversation will also include a look at what you need to know about choosing the right treatment for you and understanding any short or longer-term side-effects.

If you or a loved one has been impacted by prostate cancer and want to learn more about radiation therapy, this conversation is for you.
