AbstractProstate cancer is still a serious problem in the modern world. During the 36th ESTRO conference an attempt was made to determine which therapy is the best for patients suffering from this disease. Particular attention has been paid to the correct determination of the severity of the disease - according to the European Association of Urology (EAU) - which is the basis to treat patients in a proper way. The attention was also paid to the use of hypofractionaction and spacers used to healthy tissues protection.
