Why is it that some cancers need immediate aggressive treatment after diagnosis and others should just be closely monitored, taking a watch and wait approach? In addition, some cancers, such as prostate cancer, can be readily diagnosed and potentially over-treated whereas others, such as pancreatic cancer, are challenging to diagnose and despite aggressive treatment only have a ten year survival rate of only 1%? 

Join us for this fascinating free event where a panel of experts and patient speakers will explore how research aims to further personalise the treatment of cancer by improving diagnosis, giving an accurate prognosis and optimising treatments to ensure a kinder, more effective outcome. You will have the opportunity to hear different perspectives, ask questions and debate whether treatment is always the best option for cancer therapy
