Welcome to HW.
First, PC is one of the most treatable cancers. Plenty of treatment options and every chance of a good out come. Cancer is not a death sentence, so dial back the worry and get some sleep. To make any real comment on your father's case, we'd need to know his PSA, Gleason score a bit of information about
his pathology report. Many of us here have had radiation treatment and many, many (dare I say, most) do just fine.
As for yourself, highly unlikely you have anything to worry about
. Prudent to get a PSA test from time to time, but I'd be surprised to hear you have anything.
I'll be in the shop.
