National prostate cancer audit 2015 annual report

Reports | Published: 30 Nov 2015

The second Annual Report of the National Prostate Cancer Audit (NPCA) has been published.  The audit looks at whether NHS services in England and Wales for men diagnosed with prostate cancer meet recommended standards.

The audit found that men with locally advanced prostate cancer are increasingly being offered radical treatments in line with national guidelines.  The percentage of men with this stage of prostate cancer who had radical treatment went up from 27% between 2006 and 2008 to 47% between 2010 and 2013.  These radical treatments aim to get rid of the prostate cancer tissue and cure the cancer.
