What Are The Benefits Of A Multidisciplinary Approach In The Treatment Of Prostate Cancer?

Question: What are the benefits of a multidisciplinary approach in the treatment of prostate cancer?

Answer: The main benefit to a multidisciplinary approach in the treatment of prostate cancer is the input of additional opinions beside, say, that of a urologist. The radiation oncologists may be involved and they may have a different opinion on the value of radiation therapy in a particular circumstance. The medical oncologist may be involved, and they may recommend a different approach. It's basically, in this setting you get differing opinions from different specialists, which can be beneficial.
