Brachytherapy is a form of internal radiation used to treat prostate and other forms of cancer and involves placing devices containing radiation close to the cancer cells. Prostate brachytherapy may either be temporary or permanent. Temporary prostate brachytherapy treatment involves inserting radioactive wires into the prostate for a specific period of time, usually several minutes, before the wires are removed. During permanent prostate brachytherapy treatment, radioactive material is sealed inside seeds or capsules and implanted in and near the prostate cancer through ultrasound-guided needles and left in the prostate. The radiation given off by the wires or seeds damages the DNA of the cancer cells, preventing further cancer growth and killing the cancer cells.
If you have been recently diagnosed with prostate cancer, it’s critical to personally research prostate cancer treatment options to make an informed decision that is best for you and your family. With a few exceptions, your first treatment generally gives you the best chance for success.
