Prof Mach Roach III - University of California, San Francisco, USA

Prof Mach Roach III speaks to ecancer at the 2019 International Gastrointestinal, Liver and Uro-Oncology Conference (IGILUC) in Cairo about the management of patients with metastatic prostate cancer who are receiving radiotherapy.

In the event of metastases, he describes how these patients, historically, were given solely medication.

However, data from the STAMPEDE trial has now shown the benefit of treating the primary of the prostate in patients with minimal metastatic disease.

For patients with advanced and metastatic disease, Prof Roach III states that these patients should still receive prostate radiation.
