Can Radiation Therapy Alone Cure Prostate Cancer?

Question: Can radiation therapy alone cure prostate cancer?

Answer: Radiation therapy alone can cure many instances of low-risk prostate cancer. Prostate cancer can be divided into low-risk, intermediate-risk and high risk presentations. For the intermediate and high risk, many times we need to combine radiation therapy with hormones, chemotherapy or other measures. Radiation therapy alone can be extremely effective and used as a substitute or a complement to surgery in the curative treatment of low-risk prostate cancer.
