Study: Men are 'willing to risk earlier deaths to avoid surgery for prostate cancer' over fears it could impact their sex lives
from Daily Mail
Men with prostate cancer are willing to accept lower survival odds to avoid the side effects of surgery and radiotherapy, researchers have found. A study of more than 600 British prostate cancer patients found they were concerned about impact of treatment on their sex lives and the possibility of incontinence. The results may help persuade doctors to reduce the overtreatment of thousands of men with prostate cancer, with marginal benefits to their health.
