Scientists and health practitioners are always looking for alternative and more efficient therapies for prostate cancer. New prostate cancer treatment research is certainly going on in a number of places at the moment.
PROSTATE CANCER – NEW TREATMENT BY RADIOTHERAPY
Research is continuing to improve and try methods and technology to enable radiotherapy to the prostate gland to fewer unwanted effects and to be much more effective. One of the ways would be to reduce steadily the quantity of light received by normal organs (kidney, colon an such like) and it has been increasing during the last couple of years with methods and better models such as for example “conformal radiotherapy” and “IMRT”.
Work can also be being completed on mixing brachytherapy with additional treatment to permit some of the advantages of brachytherapy (fewer unwanted effects, greater total measure to the prostate cancer) to be properly used for men with more complex prostate cancer without reducing the opportunity of cure.
