Twenty years ago at the age of 50 a PSA screening prompted my family doctor to refer me to a urologist for a biopsy. At the age of 60 my third biopsy confirmed that I had prostate cancer 3 + 4 diploid. It appears to be very slow growing and I have chosen to eschew treatment of any kind. Other than getting up twice to urinate each night, I have no symptoms and the cancer is still not palpable on a digital rectal exam.
I have wondered for fifteen years why in place of surgical prostatectomy to treat prostate cancer, either generalized prostate artery embolization or targetted prostate artery embolization has not been developed and utilized.
Is anyone aware of clinical research in this treatment area or practitioners who might be open to exploring this possibility?
