Nev Black Posted November 29, 2017 Share Posted November 29, 2017 On our telephone meetings some men tell of their experience with radiotherapy treatment for their prostate cancer. As optimal tumor control rates can only be achieved with high local doses, associated with a considerable risk of rectal toxicity, their personal experiences can vary considerably. I noticed an overseas clinical trial being conducted on the use of Hydrogel, as a spacer, with radiotherapy treatment of prostate cancer. The link below shows one clinic apparently using Hydrogel in Australia. https://www.cancer.com.au/prostate-hydrogel As I have never had radiation and I may be a little naïve, maybe a spacer of some kind has always been used. I welcome comments from men who have had radiation treatment for prostate cancer with or without Hydrogel. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
