Radiotherapy (RT) is an alternative treatment for localized prostate cancer (PC) with the same cure rates as radical prostatectomy (RP).
Radiation dose is directly related to disease control; however, toxicity is a limitation. Androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) has a cytotoxic effect on tumor cells, which associated with RT has a synergistic effect, increasing sensitivity to radiation, enhancing its effect and improving oncological results.
Do you want to know more about hormone therapy associated with radiotherapy in local treatment and biochemical recurrence of prostate cancer?
