    Default Prostate Cancer Treatment / Pros' and Con's?

    So today was a interesting if not kinda melancholy day. My Dad who is only 58 was diagnosed with Prostate cancer about 2 weeks ago. Well today was my first involvement with this process. We met with the Radiologist Oncologist regarding 1 of the 3 options he has. Those being Surgery to remove the Prostate ( Terrible potential side effects ), Radioactive Seeds Therapy ( Also bad side effects ) as well as doing absolutly nothing and seeing what happens ( Prostate Cancer tends to be slow going ). So where am I going with this? Beside's whining a bit I guess.
    I am asking all of you to take a little time and read up on the 2 Treatment options and offer your opinions to me or any one has had a family member go thru this I would like to hear your story and subsequent results ( good or bad ).
    My Dad was 18 when I born so there is not a hugh age gap between us like some parent / child relationships. I ahve always thought may Dad and Mom as well to be invincible, so to come face to face with my Dad's mortality today was to say the least very depressing and surreal. For the first time in my life my Dad appeared to age a little bit. I noticed he seemed more vunerable than I have ever seen before. Yea, I'm pretty shaken right now, so why I'm on the Computer typing this I don't know.....something to distract me I suppose.
    But in any case, if any of you take a little of your time and check the Surgery / Radioactive Seed info that is available on the web and gibve me your opinion I will be forever grateful. Sometimes a outside nuetral view shed's more light than a person too close to the situation.
