    Here is the main thing to look for in a Prostate Cancer Doctor. What is the range of options he is offering? Is he up to date on all new treatments? Or is he “selling” the one specialty he is familiar with. The severity of your condition may create different opportunities for less invasive treatments if it is organ confined. Finally how is he “staging” your case? Does he use PCA3,advanced MRI plus Ultrasound? Collor doppler Ultrasound? Or is he just using 12 needle biopsy and PSA? Lastly don’t be fooled most treatments will have sexual consequences at a 50% probability thats why rushing into surgery or massive radiation should only be used when necessary. Ask for the actual statistics for these problems before agreeing to treatment. There are many new less invasive treatments. Do your research.

    When I questioned using the 12 needles first I was told this is what he does first. I did ask about some of the lesser ways of finding out what I may have,and they did not like me questioning them.
