Doctors win fight against UNC to build Prostate Cancer Center

— A Triangle group of doctors has won its fight against UNC Health Care to build a prostate cancer treatment center.

Four years ago, doctors from Cary Urology proposed a $10 million facility to address the state's high rate of prostate cancer among minority men. UNC Health Care fought the project, then competed for it.

UNC has now dropped its appeals, and Cary Urology's doctors say they plan to open the prostate cancer center in Southeast Raleigh next year.
