Brief description/objective

Treatment of patients suffering from castration-resistant prostate cancer is a challenge for the attending physician. Due to the polysymptomatic nature of this disease, multidisciplinary cooperation (urology, radiation oncology, medical oncology, palliative care, orthopaedics, neurosurgery) is the centre of attention. Different surgical and radio-oncological therapeutic options are available based on different stages of this disease. Optimizing quality of life should always be the focus of attention in these patients.
