TROG Trial Portfolio Summary (March 2019)
TROG explores advances in radiotherapy that influence clinical practice worldwide.
An international study (BIG 3-07/TROG 07.01) shows that after breast conserving surgery, higher radiation doses to the part of the breast where the DCIS was found, in addition to radiotherapy of the whole breast, significantly reduced its risk of returning in patients with higher-risk DCIS.
The diagnosis of ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) of the breast has increased substantially due to mammographic screening, and now accounts for 25 per cent of screen-detected breast cancer. Over 1,600 women are diagnosed with DCIS in Australia every year. However, unlike invasive breast cancer, there are limited knowledge and experience for patients and clinicians to draw on when this now common diagnosis of DCIS is made.
Prostate cancer is one of the most common cancers amongst men, with one in six men diagnosed before their 85th birthday (Cancer Australia). In fact, in 2019 alone over 19,000 men in Australia were diagnosed with prostate cancer.
