Men after Treatment in Remission vs Recurrence
Diagnosed with Prostate Cancer? Selecting a treatment Plan? If you are selecting a treatment plan for Prostate Cancer, plan to take a copy of this Study to your office visit. Even though survival rates are high, recurrence or relapse is way more common than you might think. No one wants to be treated for prostate cancer, only to have their cancer return. By monitoring the PSA of thousands of patients following treatment, trends emerge defining which treatments are more effective. See which patients remain in remission, five, ten, even fifteen years following treatment. Share the Study with your Doctor and ask about your chance for recurrence.
Make an informed decision about your treatment.
Compare treatment outcomes, discuss with your family and Doctor.

See the OUTCOMES of PROSTATE CANCER PATIENTS, just like you, across the different treatments. Which percent of men who remained in remission? See how the percentages change over the years. Thanks to the Prostate Cancer Results Study Group, an international team of doctors, specializing in prostate cancer, you can have the knowledge summarized in one document. This up to date research spans treatment of more than 129,000 patients over more than 15 years. The research covers the most common treatments for low, intermediate and high risk prostate cancer patients.
Prostate cancer treatment success is determined by monitoring PSA following treatment. Men typically have their PSA checked every six months or yearly, for a period of 10 to 15 years. A rise in PSA during that period is an indication that the cancer is no longer in remission and the cancer has returned.
Treatments included are Prostatectomy or (Surgery), External Beam Radiation, Brachytherapy or (Seeds), High Dose Rate Radiation, High Frequency Ultrasound, Protons, Cryotherapy and others.
