Prostate Cancer in 2012- A Titanic Story

Summary of lecture:

Prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in men in the developed world and is the second biggest cause of cancer death in men. Prostate cancer is a very heterogeneous disease which can range from an incidental finding requiring no treatment to a devastating and rapidly fatal condition. The last 20 years have seen incredible developments in the diagnosis, treatment and understanding of the disease. In the lecture I will reflect on these new developments in prostate cancer drawing on experience from my own research in the field and providing insights into the current state of the art with particular reference to management of castration resistant disease, developments in radiation therapy, and the prospects for molecular stratification.

This being┬áthe thirty-sixth St. Luke’s Lecture since its beginnings in 1975.
