Prostate cancer patients will benefit from a new radiotherapy trial that gives treatment in just five days

A trial of 1,800 patients has started at the Royal Marsden Hospital and the Institute of Cancer Research in London. They receive either surgery or a five-day, 37-day or 20-day radiotherapy course. NHS England said in November that the 20-day course should become the standard procedure. Scientists will monitor the men for five years to see whether the five-day course is as effective at defeating prostate cancer as the others.
