If you or a loved one has recently been diagnosed with cancer, it is important to take time to learn and consider the available treatment options or gather a second opinion before you decide.

Different treatment options have different side effects Patients and their care givers should  ask doctors about the risks, benefits, and success rates of each treatment option before deciding which treatment option is best for your health and lifestyle.

For many men who detect prostate cancer early, brachytherapy (brach·y·ther·a·py / brăk′ē-thĕr ə-pē) is great treatment option to consider due to its effectiveness in curing prostate cancer but with minimal long term side effects such as incontinence (urine leakage) and impotence (erectile dysfunction).  Prostate seed brachytherapy is a specific type of brachytherapy that allows patients to return to normal activities and enjoy an active lifestyle the next day after the procedure and well beyond treatment. Ask your physician to learn if prostate seed brachytherapy is the right treatment for your health and lifestyle.

Specialist Opinions

Don’t hesitate to seek out additional specialists to gather more information. Radiation Oncologists are physicians who perform brachytherapy procedures.  Consider seeing different specialists such as a Radiation Oncologist and/or a Urologist for multiple opinions and medical direction.  

Clinical Experience

Be sure to understand the experience that your doctor has with a chosen procedure. Although a treatment option may be available to you, another doctor or specialist may have more experience in providing the same treatment option or may have experience with different treatment options.
