Rt or surgery: External beam radiation or prostate seeding with radiation beads is one therapy. Surgical prostatectomy is another, each has its devotees and advantages as well as disadvantages. Dicuss your options with a urologist who is engaged in providing such therapy.

Good question: You should choose based on the side effects of treatment and how these would impact ur lifestyle. Observation is used for stable psa, older pts with other health issues. Surgery or XRT are both good options with very different side effects. Cryo (freezing), hormones also used. It’s a big decision and you need to be informed. For more: www.Peedoc.Com @thepeedoc.
