Prostate Cancer Research Examines Radiation Protocol for the Whole Pelvis

University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), Health Sciences

With aggressive forms of this disease, it is often unclear if radiation therapy should be applied to the prostate alone or to the whole pelvis. The reason a low-dose of radiation may be applied to the whole pelvis is that pelvic lymph nodes may have microscopic cancer cells within them.
