My Father was treated 14 years ago for his prostate Cancer. Gleason 6. He chose the Proton Treatments at Loma Linda California.

He had his 14 year checkup and his psa came back as 0.035! That has been his PSA level for the past several years.

I'm glad that he is doing so well.

Gleason 7
Davinci in Aug 2009
Next PSA check is in Mid October, 2011
