"Not many patients realize that there is usually a 40 percent upgrading of the disease after the prostate is removed, which is also a strong argument against radiation as the primary treatment for prostate cancer,"
Again, I dont understand. My drs told me that they would have done radiation instead of surgery had they known the pca had escaped the prostate.
When I mentioned the absence of uniformity in PCa tx aka no one agrees with anyone, my cardiologist, who always asks about
my PCa status, smiled and said, "Welcome to medicine!"
Re: the medics who said that they would have done RT if they had known the PCa had escaped the prostate, did they say why? Or, more important, just what they would have treated with RT? RT is a local tx.
Are they real cancer specialists or urologists?
