Summary
For many of us, getting cancer is our greatest fear. What's more, the chances are that eventually it may be a fear we will have to face. But science is at a crucial turning point in cancer treatment. This program follows three patients and their medical support teams as they employ advanced forms of personalized medicine in their fight against cancer. Ray's doctor uses robotic radiosurgery to pinpoint malignant cells when Ray's prostate cancer returns. Phil, diagnosed early, opts for a prostatectomy with the da Vinci laparoscopic technique. And Rosemary participates in new drug trials to combat her melanoma after surgery and chemotherapy failed to stop its metastasis. In addition, researchers from the Royal Marsden Hospital explain what cancer is, why some people get it, and what makes it so hard to treat
