My name is Steve and I live in New Mexico. I am 62 and was recently diagnosed with prostate cancer with one spot a Gleason 4+3=7 and other spots 3+4 and 3+3. My PSA is relatively low at +/- 5 depending on the test. Full body scans indicate everything is isolated to the prostate.
I am trying to decide what to do. I am leaning towards radiation or perhaps brachytherapy as it seems the survivability is the same as those and surgery and it seems like the side affects are less. One concern my wife in particular has is what to do if it comes back and it appears that with surgery you can do radiation but with radiation there are fewer back up options.
Appreciate any thoughts and guidance from those who have gone through this or are going through this.
