My Stampede trial

Prostate cancer

Hi Everyone I recently read about a new trial in the States for people with metistic PC, I think it's called pro active, were instead of watch and wait they tackle the problems as they show. They do a full scan and even if the smallest cancer cell shows up they blast it with proton radiotherapy which is very precise. I ve asked a few forum nurses on other sites but they have not heard of this yet, has anyone else heard of this ? My interest is I am a g 9/10 stage 4 and although I am doing reasonable always looking for some new trial that will keep me going. Thank you Joe
