Challenging Cases in the Management of Newly Diagnosed and Recurrent Prostate Cancer

The specific scenarios will include men with newly diagnosed localized, locally advanced, post-operative pT3,4 and/or margin + disease in the setting of an undetectable PSA in addition to post-operative or post-radiation PSA recurrence. An audience interactive format will be used to enhance learning and provide an opportunity to ask additional questions.

Target Audience

This program is designed to meet the interest of radiation oncologists and radiation oncology residents.

Learning Objectives

  • Apply the randomized data regarding dose escalation and hormonal therapy to the management of men with newly diagnosed localized prostate cancer.
  • Apply the randomized data regarding dose escalation and hormonal therapy to the management of men with newly diagnosed locally advanced prostate cancer.
  • Apply the available data on the management of a rising PSA following primary surgery or radiation therapy.
