Prostate Cancer Radiation Therapy
This technique uses high-energy rays or particles to kill cancer cells. Both external beam radiation and brachytherapy (seed implants) have a good track record in treating prostate cancer.
Prostate Cancer Biopsies
Biopsies detect prostate cancer in about one-fourth of men with abnormal screening tests. However, a negative biopsy does not ensure the absence of disease.
Decreased Sex Function

Prostate Cancer and DHT
It's not too much or too little testosterone that causes prostate cancer. The results are in and everyone's pointing to high levels of DHT.
Prostate Cancer AMAS Testing
A more sensible and dependable way to screen for prostate cancer is a blood test called the anti-malignin antibody screen (AMAS). Anti-malignan antibody levels become elevated when any cancer cells are present in the body.
