Prostate Cancer Quiz

  1. It is not possible to do surgery for prostate cancer after radiation treatment.



  2. After discussion with their physician, all men should consider getting a PSA checked and a Digital Rectal Exam at age 50 years unless they have a family history of prostate cancer or are African American Race, in which case they should be checked at an earlier age of 40-45 years. A first PSA value of less than 4.0 ng/ml at this young age is considered completely normal.



  3. Transrectal Ultrasound (TRUS) guided prostate biopsy has a great chance of spreading prostate cancer cells in to the blood stream and rectum.



  4. My friend was diagnosed with prostate cancer and began radiation treatment within three weeks, I was just diagnosed and was told by my physician that I didn’t need treatment at all – just to be “watched” – My doctor gave me bad information.



  5. Robotic assisted prostatectomy provides superior long term cancer cure and better quality of life (urinary continence and sexual function) when compared to the traditional open surgical approach.
