Team at Clatterbridge Cancer Centre shortlisted for prestigious medical award

The Papillon team, for rectal cancer, is one of six across the country being considered for final judging in the Cancer Care team category. Papillon is recommended for patients who are not fit enough for general anaesthesia or those who want to avoid major surgery. It is low energy contact radiotherapy delivered to the tumour via a treatment tube. Another benefit is that it avoids the need for patients to have surgery which can result in them requiring a temporary or permanent stoma (colostomy bag).
