  • Presented September 28, 2014.[ascopost.com]
  • Local symptoms are the most frequent presentation. In our case the patient presented subocclusion symptoms; that lead to diagnosis [ 4 ].[acanceresearch.com]
  • Strontium and samarium are radiopharmaceuticals given to reduce pain. Radium-223, or Xofigo is a radiopharmaceutical given to reduce pain and prolong life. How does radium-223 work? Xofigo uses radium-223, an injectable form of radium.[zerocancer.org]
  • Clinical Trial found that patients who received the hydrogel spacer reported significantly less rectal pain during radiotherapy and had significantly less severe long-term rectal complications.[spaceoar.com]
  • For about a week after treatment, you may have some pain or swelling in the area between your scrotum and rectum, and your urine may be reddish-brown.[cancer.org]
  • Contact your doctor for Temperature greater than 101 F Increasing pain Inability to urinate Follow-up About five weeks after the implant, you will return for a fol1ow-up appointment in the Radiation Oncology Department.[cancer.dartmouth.edu]
  • With this treatment, a probe is inserted into the anus and a current is passed through the probe at a level below the pain threshold, causing a contraction. The patient is instructed to squeeze the muscles when the current is on.[webmd.com]
  • PSA blood levels may be higher than normal in men who have prostate cancer, benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), or infection or inflammation of the prostate gland.[mskcc.org]
  • These may include proctitis (rectal inflammation), cystitis (bladder inflammation), urinary or rectal bleeding, narrowing of the rectum or urethra, chronic diarrhea or urinary frequency or urgency, or development of an ulcer in the rectum.[pcf.org]
  • Proctitis is an inflammation of the rectum that causes some blood in the stools in approximately five to 10 percent of patients during and/or after treatment. It is usually mild, often related to pre-existing hemorrhoids and self-limiting.[pamf.org]
  • The side effects include fatigue, skin inflammation in the treated areas, frequent or uncomfortable urination and rectal bleeding or irritation. Some prostate cancer radiation therapy side effects, however, are permanent.[roboticoncology.com]
  • The side effects of radium 223 include diarrhea, anemia and pain in the areas of the tumor where the radium is working. Men who receive radium treatment shouldn't father children for at least six months because radium may cause sperm damage.[radiologyinfo.org]
Surgical Procedure
  • These options include: Nerve-sparing radical prostatectomy: Surgical procedure in which the prostate gland is removed without severing the critical nearby nerves that send signals between the brain and penis to allow normal sexual functioning.[radiologyinfo.org]
  • Loss of urine with a cough, sneeze or laugh is called stress incontinence and is the most common type of urine leakage men experience after prostate surgery.[webmd.com]
  • Side effects of radiotherapy in this setting may include fatigue, loss of appetite, nausea, and diarrhea. Medications are usually effective at controlling side-effects so that most patients tolerate radiation therapy well.[radonc.med.ufl.edu]
  • Due to this critical location and the radiation sensitivities of these organs, it is imperative to keep radiation doses to these organs limited to prevent nausea, vomiting and to preserve organ function.[proton-therapy.org]
  • Nausea and vomiting are uncommon unless the upper abdominal areas are radiated. Mild fatigue. Patients continue their normal routine during their treatment, including working full time.[webmd.com]
  • Nausea Diarrhea Vomiting Swelling of the leg, ankle, or foot Your doctor, specialist nurse, or nuclear medicine practitioner will be able to give you more information about the treatment and possible side effects.[zerocancer.org]
Bone Pain
  • This type of radiation can be used to try to cure earlier stage cancers, or to help relieve symptoms such as bone pain if the cancer has spread to a specific area of bone.[cancer.org]
  • On physical examination, he had pelvic and lumbar pain, constipation, substancial increase in nocturia and dysuria. The patient received large-spectrum antibiotics and underwent derivation surgery with a colostomy.[acanceresearch.com]
  • Case Presentation A 69-year-old man presented with dysuria and gross hematuria. He was diagnosed 6 years ago with localized prostate cancer with a Gleason score of 6.[karger.com]
Prostatic Disease
  • No patient had clinical evidence of prostatic disease. Radiotherapy was applied in fractions of 1.8–2 Gy up to 40–50 Gy (n 3), 50–60 Gy (n 21), and 60–65 Gy (n 2). Seven patients received 5 5 Gy.[link.springer.com]
Prostatic Disease
  • No patient had clinical evidence of prostatic disease. Radiotherapy was applied in fractions of 1.8–2 Gy up to 40–50 Gy (n 3), 50–60 Gy (n 21), and 60–65 Gy (n 2). Seven patients received 5 5 Gy.[link.springer.com]


  • Special attention is given to the value and sequence of systemic treatment options in relation to surgery and radiotherapy.Proving the reader with the latest treatment standards of prostate cancer, this book will be of great value to urologists and radiation[books.google.com]
  • CONCLUSIONS: An increased frequency of rectal cancer after prostatic irradiation, apparent on crude analysis, could be attributed to age confounding and other unmeasured confounders associated with prostate cancer treatment and rectal cancer risk.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • RESULTS: Only the percentage of positive prostate biopsies (P(Cox) 0.02) was a significant predictor of the time to post-treatment PSA failure.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • These include high-intensity focus ultrasound, or HIFU treatment, as well as hormone treatment, which may be recommended in cases of advanced prostate cancer.[medicalnewstoday.com]
  • Proton radiation for prostate cancer treatment offers an innovative method of radiation treatment intended to lower the risk of prostate cancer treatments and side effects.[floridaproton.org]


  • Tumor hypoxia is a common feature of prostate tumors associated with the stabilization of hypoxia-inducible-factor 1alpha (HIF-1α) and poor prognosis following radiation therapy.[xstrahl.com]
  • Conedown Boost to Boost Irradiation Only and Comparing Neoadjuvant to Adjuvant Total Androgen Suppression (TAS) 94-08 A Phase III Trial of the Study of Endocrine Therapy Used As a Cytoreductive and Cytostatic Agent Prior to Radiation Therapy In Good Prognosis[en.wikibooks.org]
  • These tumors usually occur many years after exposure to radiation and are associated with a poor prognosis [ 2 ]. Post-irradiation bone sarcomas are more common than soft tissue sarcomas.[acanceresearch.com]
  • Advances in surgery, radiation, and endocrine therapy have greatly improved the prognosis for patients with this disease. Yet the many different choices — including the various types of radiation therapy — can be hard to sort out.[mskcc.org]
  • In recent years, patients typically actually have less cancer because of the intense screening with PSA blood tests, and, therefore, have an inherently better prognosis than patients from 10 years ago.[prostatecancertreatmentcenter.com]


  • METHODS AND MATERIALS: In an analysis of the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results registry, we compared men who had radiotherapy for prostatic carcinoma with those treated surgically and those treated with neither modality.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Information was evaluated from the Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results (SEER) database, Cancer of the Prostate Strategic Urological Research Endeavor (CaPSURE) database, or single institutional/registry information.[read.nxtbook.com]

  • This patient-controlled device is made of three parts: a pump, a pressure-regulating balloon, and a cuff that encircles the urethra and prevents urine from leaking.[webmd.com]
  • If the cancer is advanced, to help keep the cancer under control for as long as possible and to help prevent or relieve symptoms.[cancer.org]
  • Radiation treatment can disrupt the DNA in cancer cells, preventing them from multiplying. As well as stopping their spread, it can kill them completely. Radiation can be used to "cure" the body of cancer, and this is known as a curative treatment.[medicalnewstoday.com]
