There have been alot of posts lately about gleason 6 with 1-2 cores positive. I can not understand why someone would not do AS as opposed to RP, IMRT, and a host of other treatments. Can someone please tell me how you would want to treat your body with radiation and not even know where the cancer is. It is confusing to me. Where do they radiate and why? I imagine it is the prostate bed, but how do they know it is there?
Why would you want to do radiation and not know where the cancer is? Sorry if this sounds dumb, but it is happening more and more here and I just do not understand what is going on.
Basically referring to RPs with recurrence.
