Treating a Rising PSA after Prostatectomy

Who Needs to be Treated?


If you have had a radical prostatectomy and the PSA begins to rise sometime later, what should you do?

  • Is this life-threatening?
  • Does everyone need therapy?
  • For those who choose therapy, which one is best and when should it be given?

Few studies demonstrate the best option and considerable controversy surrounds this problem. Before beginning any therapy, learn about the options and what is currently known about their impact. (Revised video May, 2012)
