Who Needs Combination Radiation Treatment (External Beam And Seed Implants)?

Question: Who needs combination radiation treatment (external beam and seed implants)?

Answer: Combination treatment, where patients receive both external beam radiation and an implant are done for men who've got intermediate or higher risk cancers. These include men who have PSA levels greater than 10, a Gleason score greater than 6 and men who've got cancers that are bulkier, meaning that you can feel them usually on both sides of the prostate.
