Dr. David Samadi states that ‘the one size fits all approach’ is incorrect id someone is diagnosed with prostate cancer. Surgery is his preferred choice of treatment as the prostate is removed and the only available treatment option with accurate staging.
The PSA after surgery should be zero & will be undetectable.
If prostate cancers recurs after surgery, a patient can consider radiation. However, if a patient gets radiation treatment options such as Cyberknife or seed implants first, surgery cannot be considered as a second line of defense.
