I was diagnosed with prostate cancer. my current PSA is 4.9…

Customer Question
I was diagnosed with...

I was diagnosed with prostate cancer. my current PSA is 4.9 and my gleason score I believe is a 7. I spoke to a dr who specializes in radiation and he believes radiation will enflame my prostate and make it almost impossible to pee since I have prostatitis already. what do you think?

Doctor's Assistant: Is the condition chronic, or acute?

Chronic I have burning when I sit and I urinate a lot. I also take supplements but they help sometimes. antibiotics do not help me because I was told I have non-bacterial prostitius. I am afraid of the prostate removal.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I have had 4 TURPS in the past at cedar Sinai in los angeles.

Hormonal treatment would be good enough for prostate cancer. in your case.

Radiotherapy may cause problems because of following;

1) Previous 4 TUR-Ps

2) Prostatitis.

Both of these cause significant scarring which may increase by radiotherapy and may cause urinary issues.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
