Robotic prostatectomy vs radiation/hormone treatment
Last updated: April 2021
72 years old and generally healthy. Had a TURP in 2019. No cancer found. In the past year, PSA climbed to 12. MRI and CT scan followed by biopsy indicate cancer. Currently scheduled for a bone scan and urogram to determine if cancer has spread beyond the prostate. Looking at robotic-assisted prostatectomy or radiation/hormone treatment. I will be meeting with both the surgeon and radiation oncologist within next week. The urologist recommends another TURP if I proceed with radiation/hormone treatment.
What questions should I be asking surgeon and radiation oncologist?
