Professor David Neal – Prostate Cancer

A new study’s found that regular monitoring of prostate cancer offers the same chances of survival 10 years after diagnosis as surgery or radiotherapy. A trial involving men with localised prostate cancer found the survival rate was 99%, regardless of the treatment received. The findings, published in the New England Journal of Medicine, are now being used to investigate the effectiveness of PSA blood tests in screening the cancer. We spoke to Professor David Neal, co-investigator from the Universities of Cambridge and Oxford.
