Radiation Therapy for Prostate Cancer

My name is Yaser Bassel, I’m a board certified urologist with Advanced Urology Institute.

With Radiation Therapy there are different means of administering radiation, there are seeds that can be implanted, there’s external beam radiation therapy and sometimes radiation oncologists can utilize both of them together or in combination. Typically the radiation therapy is indicated for those older patients who are not good surgical candidates, but for the most part radiation therapy is still an option even for younger patients who are not good surgical candidates or who just don’t want to go through surgery. There are some side effects related to radiation as well, but newer forms of radiation therapy have been able to decrease that, and just focus the radiation energy on the prostate cancer itself.
