Prostate Cancer Treatment: What worries you-Impotence, Incontinence or Cure?

3566

Prostate cancer is unique in that sometimes a patient will choose a treatment that places the concerns about risks (incontinence and impotence) over the concern about cure. Yes that’s right…”Who you are” and what is important to you will help guide your decision.

So, a part of your decision is to get a feel for what is important to you and to factor that into your decision-making process.

As I am wont to say to patients, “Sometimes what is best for the cancer is not what’s best for you.”
