Surgery at age 57 and the cancer returned. Salvage proton therapy did the job.
I was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer in March 2000 at the age of 57. My urologist outlined several options for treating the cancer, but he did not mention Proton Beam Therapy. As I investigated my treatment options, I was unaware of Proton Beam Therapy so I elected to have my prostate surgically removed. The radical prostatectomy was done in July 2000.
