Hello I wanted to know if anyone here has gone through prostate cancer and what was the treatment used please. The doctor is talking about a total ablation of the prostate in my case and I am against this. I don't want him to remove a part of me. I need help so can anyone give me same please?

Hello
What is your age please? I understand you are worried and anxious but think about the ablation of the prostate, it is just the removal of the whole prostate sac, and it does offer a chance that the cancer will not return. There are also other treatments that you can consider: brachytherapy or the ultrasound treatment. I wish you good luck talk to your doctors again and gain their opinion. Trust them.
