    Prostate Cancer Radiation

    Do any of the Prostate folks have a good resource for a beginner's guide to this topic? I have a friend who is trying to figure out how to help her Dad through this, he seems to be Stage 1 but not totally sure. She said he is having radiation with spacers and markers. Thanks in advance!

      The best guidance comes from the NCCN treatment guidelines. NCCN is the National Comprehensive Cancer Network, a group of the top 31 cancer centers here in the U.S. They share what's working and what's not working within their group and develop guidelines for every type of cancer. It's free, even to patients.

      Here is the extensive PDF for prostate cancer. You can download and help your friend.
