I must echo the well informed lady posting above me. I too had a "little" amount of cancer. I had to weigh through all the options. Actually the surgeon who finally did my sugery told me I could wait 6 months and think about
it before doing anything at all. I was nervous but I felt my decision was the by far the best one. 14 months down the road I am somewhat disappointed by the outcome. No return of cancer, no incontinence, but no return of normal erections either. I have to use injections for sex. I guess 2/3 isn't bad but I hoped for more. I still would do what I did over again but do consider all the options before doing anything. Consider the watchful waiting, proton therapy, radiation therapy, cryo, and hifu besides surgery. The best of luck to you.........
