Prof Claude Abbou speaks to ecancer at the 2019 International Gastrointestinal, Liver and Uro-Oncology Conference (IGILUC) in Cairo about quality of life after radical prostatectomy and local treatment in oligometastatic prostate cancer.

Prof Abbou explains the importance of understanding the patient's quality of life after surgery, but also to consider the impact on the patient's family too.

He also discusses the difficulty in treating advanced oligometastatic disease and how the primary tumour should be treated to reduce the risk of dissemination.
