American Cancer Society

Other than skin cancer, prostate cancer is the most common cancer in American men. The American Cancer Society’s estimates for prostate cancer in the United States for 2021 are:

About 248,530 new cases of prostate cancer
About 34,130 deaths from prostate cancer


American Brachytherapy Society

The American Brachytherapy Society finds many men diagnosed with prostate cancer are not presented with a highly effective, minimally invasive treatment option: prostate brachytherapy seed implants.

Prostate brachytherapy seed implants, also known as low-dose-rate brachytherapy (LDR-BT) is a highly effective, minimally invasive treatment for organ-confined prostate cancer. It can be offered as a single treatment for low-risk disease or in conjunction with external beam radiotherapy (EBRT) and/or androgen-deprivation therapy (ADT) for intermediate and high-risk disease.


Prostate Cancer Free Foundation

The Prostate Cancer Free Foundation, formerly the Prostate Cancer Treatment Research Foundation, was established in November of 2010. The Foundation works to help people interested in and affected by prostate cancer through education and research. This research is supported by the members of the Prostate Cancer Results Study Group, an international team of experts in the field of prostate cancer.
