Have been diagnosed with prostate cancer. Started with a PSA of 14. Had biopsy done. Out of 12 samples, one came back that said 25% of one sample and a Gleason score of 4+4=8. Have had other test done, bone density for one. Just had a Lupron injection today and was told I'd have 8 total in two years. After talking to cancer doctor have decided on 25 radiation treatments and then seeding. Sounded like the best option to me, and it's one of the two he suggested. The other being straight radiation only. Any comments
