      Bill, I assume that you are asking the probability of reoccurance. As we here are not doctors and we do not have the details of your case we can not tell you the probabilities. You should also know that any probability cited is unually 5 years old and out of date and thaqt probabilities are general in nature and hard to apply to any one case. That being said most types of prostrate cancer are not agressive in nature and thus have a low rate of reoccurance. The important thing to keep up with the check-ups and screenings so that if it does manage to come back it is found asa early as possible to make treatment easier. Good Luck!!!!!!!

      You're talking about a standard treatment that has been shown to be effective. Recurrence I can tell you from experience has little to do with the treatment and everything to do with you. Statistically, mine should never have recurred, but it did. If you're looking for data or probabilities ask your doctors. If you're asking if seeds are a good way to go, I'm sure there are many on the site that have gone that route with success. Consider rephrasing your question.

      Keep it positive and smile :)
