One of the problems with radiation is that in many patients the Prostate is not only close to the bladder neck, but actually nestled up against the base of the bladder.
This leads to excessive radiation to the spincter muscle (see Purgatory's journey).
Is there any way to pull the prostate down a few mm's from the bladder?
How about attaching a (light) weight to the penis?
This would pull the urethra down a few mm and the prostate with it.
I know that none of us are Uro Docs, but with the vast knowledge on this forum perhaps some one could come up with an answer.
This seems so simple that if it worked it would already be used. But has any doc tried it?
Please forgive me for thinking outside the box.
