Mayo researchers find few side effects from radiation treatment given after prostate cancer surgery
The largest single-institution study of its kind has found few complications in prostate cancer patients treated with radiotherapy after surgery to remove the prostate. Men in this study received radiotherapy after a prostate-specific antigen test following surgery indicated their cancer had recurred. (2009-09-28)
