Survival rates for patients with prostate cancer better with surgery vrs radiotherapy

A rigorous evaluation of survival rates has shown that cancer patients with localised prostate cancer—the most common form of prostate cancer—have a better chance of survival if treated by surgery than by radiotherapy. These findings hold true even after accounting for type of radiation and the aggressiveness of cancer. The study is published in the peer-reviewed journal, European Urology.
