Rehabilitation and palliation of patients with prostatic cancer

Part of the Collection de L’Académie Européenne de Médecine de Réadaptation book series (LACADEMIE)


The chief aim of all medical, potentially curative follow-up care measures (recurrence prophylaxis, early detection and therapy of disease recurrence) is to lengthen survival time (fig. 1.3). The cancer disease thus represents the focus of curative follow-up care.
