A Phase III Randomized Study of Hypofractionated 3D-CRT/MRT Versus Conventionally Fractionated 3D-CRT/MRT in Patients With Favorable-Risk Prostate Cancer

RATIONALE: Giving radiation therapy that uses a 3-dimensional (3-D) image of the tumor to help focus thin beams of radiation directly on the tumor, and giving hypofractionated radiation therapy (higher doses over a shorter period of time), may be less costly with fewer side effects and just as effective in treating prostate cancer. PURPOSE: This randomized phase III trial is studying several different radiation therapy regimens to compare how well they work in treating patients with stage II prostate cancer.
