Treatment and Side Effects

Length
28 mins
Overview
This presentation is an overview of the most common and serious side effects that are possible for men who are treated for prostate cancer.  It compares and contrasts the 4 main treatment options: surgery, low dose rate (LDR; permanent seed) brachytherapy, high dose rate (HDR: temporary seed) brachytherapy, and external beam radiotherapy (EBRT).   This is a presentation that men and their families who are still undecided as to what treatment option they prefer may find useful as it compares the risk of developing a side effect of therapy (e.g. bladder leaking, rectal bleeding, etc) between the four options.  This presentation is based on the best available data in the medical literature that a collaborative group of surgeons and oncologists agreed upon to help make sure patients are provided consistent, high quality information.
