Tony, as much as I love you as a mod and respect your opinion, I'll offer a different take re your second paragraph.
Your implication is that treating PCa with radiation is "gambling with cancer". I understand that many uro-docs feel that way and, obviously so do you. However, my research would indicate that many, many, many studies have been done that demonstrate the effectiveness of radiation as being as equally curative of PCa as surgery. I understand that you just stated this as your opinion and I respect that. However, my opinion reflects that of those radomized stuides of 15+ years that show fairly equal results when normalized for patient diagnosis.
Anyway, you are certainly entitled to your opinion, I just disagree with you on this point.
