Radiation seems to improve survival rates

Postby PressWatch » Thu Nov 11, 2010 11:59 am

The Results of a Study conducted amongst a large sample in USA seem to indicate potentially longer survival rates amongst patients receiving radiation after surgery. Surgery is still only available to around 10% or so of PC patients and so therefore more effort needs to be focused on this vital area. However, it is encouraging to learn that radiation treatment may extend survival significantly.
