“HOW TO OVERCOME THE CHALLENGES?”

 

 

New Prostate Cancer Treatment: TFT

July 2, 2010

Prof. David Crawford

 

Targeted Focal Therapy (TFT) - a term many in health related fields may not be familiar in the context of Prostate Cancer Treatment. This new approach can be used to manage early stage, non-metastatic prostate cancer. At the Men’s Health World Congress the ISMH will be opening dialogue regarding this and other innovations in the treatment of prostate cancer. Prof. David Crawford, Scientific Committee Member of the Men's Health World Congress, believes, “In many countries we are winning the war regarding eliminating advanced prostate cancer, but in some senses loosing another war. The pendulum has swung to over diagnosis and treatment in some men. Targeted Focal Therapy is an alternative to more aggressive therapies in some men.”
