Patient-reported financial toxicity associated with contemporary treatment for localized prostate cancer.
Contemporary treatment modalities for localized prostate cancer provide comparable overall and cancer-specific survival. However, the degree of financial burden imposed by treatment, the factors contributing to that burden, and how different treatments compare with regard to financial toxicity remain poorly understood. The investigators sought to explore these factors. They concluded that external beam radiotherapy was associated with the highest financial burden, even when controlling for age, education and income.
