I understand that HT is sometimes given for about 6 months before radiotherapy in order to shrink the tumor i.e to make it smaller so there is less of it to treat resulting in it getting more radiation. I had TURP before IMRT during which 30 grams of my prostate were removed. Since this would have reduced the size of my prostate and tumor, can I assume that the radiation would then be more effective in the same way as the HT pre treatment.?
