My father, 80 yrs old, was recently diagnosed with prostate cancer. PSA 21, all 14 biopsy needs had cancerous cells, cancer is in prostate and seminal vesicles. My father was interested in the Proton Beam therapy such as at Loma Linda. His primary urologist has said that ne needs a more aggressive treatment with X-ray, radioactive seeds and hormone treatment and that the Proton Beam is not powerful enough. The admissions nurse at Loma Linda has countered that the Proton Beam is actually stronger than the conventional treatment?
Now we are further confused and need a 2nd 2nd opinion but are there now two camps and no neutral balanced advice?View Thread
