Cost effective prostate cancer treatment underused in the UK

pared to radiotherapy treatments.2  Despite the increased risk, more younger men choose surgery over radiotherapy – studies have shown that this treatment choice is influenced by the patient's first consultation with their doctor.2

Associate Professor Lotte Steuten of Health Technology Assessment at University of Twente and the lead author of the study said: "Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men5 and UK survival rates are lower than in comparable countries such as Norway and Sweden.6 Brachytherapy is offered as an out-patient procedure, which means it has shorter recovery time than surgery and our findings reflect that it is more cost effective.1 We would urge all practitioners involved in the care of people with prostate cancer to consider these results and how they can achieve the best outcomes for their patients as well as cost effectiveness for the healthcare system compared to other treatments excluding active surveillance."

Dr Christine Elwell , Consultant Oncologist, Northampton General Hospital, commented:  "In the past 20 years we have made huge strides in prostate cancer survival. But we can't and shouldn't lose sight of quality of life.  This long term analysis joins a growing body of evidence that brachytherapy should be considered in more cases and can improve outcomes."

Ben Pais , Nucletron, an Elekta company's Vice President Medical Affairs, said: "The NHS recently outlined its commitment to improving radiotherapy services across England as part of its ambition to save an extra  5,000 lives a year from cancer.7 These findings reflect that brachytherapy can offer better outcomes and is the most cost effective treatment option."
