What Considerations Must Be Made When Deciding What Procedures Are Available To Me During My Salvage Therapy?

Question: What considerations must be made when deciding what procedures are available to me during my salvage therapy?

Answer: When we think about your salvage therapy, the first thing, obviously, is to consider what was the first, primary therapy. So depending on your primary therapy, you and doctor will look at all the different treatment options as well as any complications. For example, if you've had prior surgery, one of the most common salvage therapies is radiation. So, not all options are available to you; we make a decision for you based on your primary, initial therapy for your prostate cancer.
