Researchers from the Christie Hospital, Manchester, have received a grant of over £225,000 to help clinicians establish which men with high risk prostate cancer need extra radiotherapy treatment to reduce the chances of their cancer coming back.
10,900 men die from prostate cancer in the UK each year. That's one man every hour and its the most common cancer in men. Many men with high risk prostate cancer may have a tumour that has already spread outside the prostate to the pelvic lymph nodes. However, this is extremely difficult to detect and many men are at risk of being under-treated because the cancer is too small to see.
Now researchers at the Christie are developing a device which can help to pinpoint those men in need of additional radiotherapy, whilst sparing others unnecessary treatment which could cause damaging side effects.
