Seriously, it seems that everyone I know of recently with prostate cancer either has gone or is going the brachytherapy (seed radiation) route, yet it's hardly evident here. Is it regionally more popular/common in certain areas? Or do those pursuing the surgery route just tend to find their way here more?
A cousin and a co-worker are at the same point as my husband (recently diagnosed with early stage PCa), and another cousin had seeds a couple of years ago.
Just a point of curiosity for me ...
