Prostate Cancer: a disease of our time
RSE/Scottish Cancer Foundation Joint Lecture
Prostate cancer continues to pose considerable controversies, and to attract interest and attention from the public, the media, scientists and urologists alike. From molecular biology and gigantic leaps in technology to high-quality randomised controlled trials of screening and treatment, never before has the urological community witnessed such a proliferation of research activity on this common malignancy. This presentation will take you through a journey of evidence-based knowledge, examining the old, the new, the good, the bad and the future, in managing this common and ubiquitous disease.
