Brachytherapy + Prostate Cancer
Every man should see this. Commissioned by the Brachytherapy Advisory Trust to promote Brachytherapy as a treatment for Prostate Cancer. Unbelievably few know about it, though it's been around for 25 years. If you catch Prostate Cancer early enough guys, you won't need to have your Prostate removed and all the horrendous things that come with it. Brachytherapy involves small radioactive pellets, is an outpatient procedure, and you'll be home in the afternoon. The personal stories are very illuminating. And it's on the NHS.

4D Brachytherapy The Patients Film - Prostate Cancer Treatment
Our brief from WebBXT, was to create a series of informative, science based videos on a new prostate cancer treatment. "Brachytherapy" is a targeted form of radiotherapy and literally means 'near therapy'. As a new form of cancer care, there was an urgent desire to raise awareness of it on several levels and to different audiences. At one end of the spectrum we produced a 40 Minute training video which is being used to train new practitioners in the treatment. At the other end is a ten minute film that explains to prospective patients what to expect from the treatment lets them meet the team that will look after them. Each film used the basic content of 4D Brachytherapy and presented it in a different way for different audiences. Our films are: An advert to be used at global Trade Shows - this gives an overview of the treatment and raises awareness of it to medical professionals A patient film to be used for Brachytherapy patients at medical centres -- this needed to be an extremely sensitive film as viewers were likely to be in the early stages of accepting their diagnosis and would need all the information in the film to enable them to consider the treatment as one of the options available to them An animation to be used as a website trailer raising awareness of the process of ordering the radioactive seeds used for treatment online -- the audience here is the staff at medical centres who order the treatment online A 40 minute training video used to train new medical practitioners in the complete brachytherapy treatment. This was an in-depth, exact and detailed account of the treatment, instructing practitioners in how to carry out the process. This series of films supported the launch of the new product for WebBXT and it demonstrates how awareness can be created very quickly when bringing a new product or service to market. This project also shows how film can be adapted to suit any audience and message.

Treating Prostate Cancer with Radioactive Seed Implants
Dr. Geo Espinosa, ND, LAc, IFMCP, CNS, clinical assistant professor of integrative and functional urology at New York University and author of Thrive—Don’t Survive: Dr. Geo’s Guide to Living Your Best Life Before & After Prostate Cancer, discusses radioactive seed implants as a treatment for prostate cancer. Radioactive seed implants (also known as Brachytherapy or internal radiation therapy) are tiny pellets of radioactive material that are placed around the prostate to kill cancer cells. This treatment method has fallen out of favor, and fewer physicians are being trained in its administration. Why? Because while these seeds may effectively kill cancer cells, they also can cause urinary difficulties, such as urinary frequency and urgency, and infertility, reduced semen production and erectile dysfunction.

Prostate Brachytherapy and prostate cancer operation
Rodney Ellis, MD, performs a prostate cancer procedure utilizing the SpaceOAR® injection procedure. The SpaceOAR® System is the first product in the United States cleared as a spacer to protect the rectum in patients undergoing prostate cancer (PCa) radiotherapy. Placed through a tiny needle, the hydrogel is administered as a liquid, but quickly solidifies into a soft gel that expands the space between the prostate and rectum. The hydrogel spacer holds this space until radiotherapy is complete. The spacer then liquefies and is absorbed and cleared from the body in the patient’s urine.

Eric Klein, M.D., - Planting Seeds to Fight Prostate Cancer
Cleveland Clinic News Service - May 2, 2017 CLEVELAND - Men faced with prostate cancer may feel overwhelmed by treatment choices. Of the options available, one is typically not as popular, but remains highly effective – radioactive ‘seed’ implants. “We have good long term follow-up, 15-year follow-up, now that shows the cure rates for seeds are as good as they are for surgery and external beam radiation therapy for early stage prostate cancer,” said Eric Klein, M.D., of Cleveland Clinic. Recent research shows seeds, also called brachytherapy or internal radiation, work well for intermediate risk prostate cancer too. Each seed is housed in a tiny metal casing and contains radioactive iodine. The seeds are implanted during an outpatient procedure under general anesthesia. Dr. Klein said about 100 radioactive seeds are usually implanted into the prostate and guided in place using ultrasound. The seeds deliver a high dose of radiation inside the prostate while limiting damage to surrounding tissues. The radioactive material disintegrates over time, but the casings remain inside the prostate. Dr. Klein said side effects are minimal compared to other forms of radiation and just one treatment session is needed. “Compared to external beam radiation therapy, seeds are really convenient because it’s one outpatient procedure whereas external beam radiation therapy and standard treatment is usually 35 to 40 treatments over eight weeks,” said Dr. Klein. Dr. Klein added that the ideal candidate for radioactive seeds is an older man with early or intermediate risk prostate cancer that has not spread.

5-Session Radiation Treatment For Prostate Cancer (SBRT or Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy)
The most common course of radiation for prostate cancer takes 9-weeks of daily treatment, but we now have much faster technique that requires only FIVE sessions (each, only 2-3 minutes.) This newer technique is called "SBRT" (stereotactic body radiation therapy), and it uses the most advanced radiation therapy machines that have millimeter precision in targeting and tracking the prostate. Studies have shown excellent cancer control rates, comparable to 9-weeks of daily treatment and prostate brachytherapy ("seed implant".) We provide this treatment to eligible patients under a research protocol to collect longterm data on cancer control and quality of life outcomes.

If you need radiation therapy for prostate cancer, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center recommends that you discuss both options with your doctor and weigh the pros and cons of each. In this video, Michael Zelefsky, MD, explains some factors to consider when deciding which treatment to pursue. {partial transcript} Dr. Zelefsky, tell me about radiation therapy because that seems to be the obvious choice versus surgery. Well, radiation therapy, as we mentioned, comes in two forms: Its external beam radiation therapy, with sophisticated targeting technique, known as IGRT (Image Guided Radiation Therapy) and seed implants. Usually, each one could be a therapy that is very effective in the earlier stages of prostate cancer. For more aggressive prostate cancers, we sometimes combine these two treatments, the external radiation plus the seed implant. Sometimes when it’s a little more aggressive, we may consider adding hormonal therapy together to achieve the best control of the prostate cancer. What’s the rational for adding hormonal therapy to radiation treatments? Based on a number of studies, it appears that when it’s more aggressive, you need a little more help in eradicating the disease, such as higher radiation doses. There is evidence to suggest that when using hormones together with radiation, the hormones seem to sensitize the radiation and make it more effective in terms of its ability to kill cells.

What is 3-D Conformal Radiation Therapy? General Guidelines Possible Side Effects What Is Intensity-Modulated Radiotherapy? What is Proton Beam Radiation Therapy? Additional Questions About Radiation Therapy Radiation therapy, also called X-ray therapy, uses high levels of radiation to kill prostate cancer cells or keep them from growing and dividing, while minimizing damage to healthy cells. Radiation can be produced from a machine outside the body (external radiation) and directed right at the prostate or by putting materials that produce radiation (radioisotopes) through thin plastic tubes into the cancer-infected area (internal radiation or brachytherapy). Internal radiation therapy places radioactive implants directly into the tumor. These radioactive sources can be temporary (removed after the proper dose is reached) or permanent. See Radioactive Seed Implants for more about this type of radiation therapy for prostate cancer. What Happens on Treatment Days? External radiation therapy requires regular sessions (generally five days per weeks) during a period of about five to eight weeks. For each treatment, the radiation therapist will help you onto the treatment table and into the correct position. Once the therapist is sure you are positioned well, he or she will leave the room and start the radiation treatment.I really don't care anymore Don't have any family No one that calls me on the phone No one that really cares I do have a few friends that care And that you love me But other Nat I don't care I wanna die Doesn't matter to me no more

Prostate Cancer - Treatment And Recovery Part 2
http://www.balancedhealthtoday.com/ http://www.balancedhealthtoday.com/endosterol.html http://www.balancedhealthtoday.com/products.html The main advances in prostate cancer treatment are being made in surgery and radiotherapy. Surgeons are learning how to remove the prostate without causing the problematic nerve damage which was inevitable in the past. And radiotherapy technology advances mean that far higher doses can be targeted more precisely on the prostate, killing more cancer cells with fewer treatments. Recent advances include the use of a technique called brachytherapy. There are two major methods of prostate brachytherapy, permanent seed implantation and high dose rate (HDR) temporary brachytherapy. Permanent seed implants involve injecting approximately 100 radioactive seeds into the prostate gland. They give off their cancer-killing radiation at a low dose rate over several weeks or months, and the seeds remain in the prostate gland permanently. HDR temporary brachytherapy instead involves placing very tiny plastic catheters into the prostate gland, and then giving a series of radiation treatments through these catheters. Another option is High Intensity Focussed Ultrasound, which uses sound waves to 'melt' away the cancer.

(Alternative Prostate Cancer Treatment) Low Sexual Side Effects
(Alternative Prostate Cancer Treatment) Low Sexual Side Effects __________________________________________________________ "He had always been so healthy, we were both shocked. We talked to the doctors and got their opinions on what they thought we should do, then I went on the Internet and I started examining all of that. Then after we talked to Dr. Wolfstein, then he told me where to look on the Internet, so I looked up the website(http://vci.org), and I got the information from that, and I started looking up hyperthermia. We had never considered alternative medicine before because we were very traditional people in our medicines. We heard about all the side effects that come from the traditional medicines, and neither one of us liked any of those side effects. So we thought this sounded very introducing." "The combination of the hyperthermia with the low dose radiation sounded very intriguing. It's being used in Germany, in Europe. I know that the FDA keeps people from getting things as readily here as in Europe, so I figured if its there, and its valuable, I need to look into it." __________________________________________________________ Hyperthermia combined with low dose of radiation, as it is given @ VCI has been proven twice more succesful cancer treatment than any of the standard forms of care: surgery, radiation alone, and/or chemotherapy combined.

Seed Implant + External Radiation: Is it the Right Treatment for You?
A recent large study reports on men treated by combining seed implantation and external radiation. There are many flaws with the report and it provides very misleading information about the effectiveness of this treatment while completely omitting any information about side effects. Men should be very concerned if their doctor advises this combination as it is more likely to be good for the doctor than for you, the patient.

My Prostate Cancer—#5—Review Brachytherapy, Radical Prostatectomy and Cryotherapy
This episode of My Prostate Cancer is titled: "More Therapy Choices," and reviews Brachytherapy, Radical Prostatectomy and Cryotherapy. Knowing how to approach a prostate cancer diagnosis includes knowing which therapy choices are available. There are two types of Brachytherapy. The first is low dose, whereby rice sized seeds are implanted into the prostate and emit radiation for awhile which is designed to kill the cancer. In the second, called High Dose Brachytherapy, a needle is inserted into the gland whose tip gives off a higher does of radiation, which is meant to kill the cancer. The thing about these therapies is that they will do less damage to the tissue surrounding the prostate which usually equates to less side-effects, and that means less sexual side-effects like loss of erections. Another approach is to cut the entire prostate out and as long as that tumor is completely contained within the prostate, this should cure the cancer. Take special notice of that qualifier "as long as the tumor is completely contained within the prostate." If it isn't, well then you might have to come back with radiation or something else at a later date. Also, side effects include incontinence, which usually means urinary when it comes to prostate cancer, and erectile dysfunction. I also review Cryotherapy, which is a process where the cancer is frozen to death. This approach is used as much as the others but it is employed when other approaches fail. Unfortunately, you can expect problems with erections, that is: not get them or at least not getting them like you used to. One other thing about the erection issues: if you complain about them doctors will often say that the issues might have something to do with age. I don't know why they do that. Does this make sense: I was getting good erections the day before my treatment, whatever it was. Then, after the treatment, I'm not. How much time has passed? Maybe a month or two or three? Okay, let's err on the side of caution and say six months. So, in six months I've aged by how much? Six months, right? Okay, so it stands to reason that the treatment might have something to do with the limpness, but does it really make any sense that my "aging" six months might have something to do with it? No, it doesn't. That Baloney. It's great that Ben Stiller, Dr. Oz and other media outlets have just recently covered Ben's Prostate Cancer diagnosis, but when compared to breast cancer—which is a terrible disease that kills as many people as prostate cancer does—it gets hardly any news coverage. It's interesting the number of men who with every good intention work diligently to promote breast cancer awareness while doing virtually nothing to do the same thing for prostate cancer. This always comes to mind when the National Football league dons pink shoes and wristbands for the Susan G. Komen Organization. It's great, but it's too bad there's not another Sunday when they don blue for raising the awareness of prostate cancer.
