Integrative Therapiekonzepte beim Prostatakarzinom können die Lebensqualität verbessern, zur Verlängerung der progressionsfreien Zeit beitragen. Zusätzlich können sie die Nebenwirkungen konventioneller Therapien reduzieren und die Ansprechrate erhöhen.

Der Beitrag gibt einen Überblick zu möglichen sinnvollen komplementären Methoden, deren Wirkweise und Evidenzgrad.
