Will I Become Incontinent After Seed Implant Therapy?

Question: Will I become incontinent after seed implant therapy?

Answer: Incontinence refers to the involuntary leakage of urine. This is a big factor in terms of one's quality of life after the procedure. It also is a big difference between choosing radical prostatectomy where the incidence is much greater than with seed implant therapy. The incidence of incontinence is one that is less than one percent with patients that have undergone seed implant brachytherapy. That has particular appeal for men in terms of the quality of life after they are finished with their therapy, and one of the reasons why we see so many patients for prostate brachytherapy.
