Prostate Cancer Surgery vs. Prostate Cancer Radiation

Harmonie Club

Dr. David Samadi, prostate cancer expert, highlights the benefits of robotic prostatectomy surgery over radiation for prostate cancer. A study from Memorial Sloan Kettering showed a 65 percent reduced risk of prostate cancer metastasis after surgery compared to radiation.

Long-term side effects of prostate cancer radiation include rectal bleeding, bladder bleeding, and a 5 percent increased risk of rectal cancer and bladder cancer. With robotic prostatectomy surgery, side effects and risks are reduced over time, not increased.
