Side Effects of Radiation Therapy for Prostate Cancer | Prostate Cancer Staging Guide
 
06:31
PCRI’s Executive Director, Mark Scholz, MD, talks about the side effects of radiation therapy for prostate cancer. He compares the side effects of modern radiation therapy against older radiation technology. He gives an overview of what to expect when undergoing radiation therapy. Don’t know your stage? Take the quiz: Visit http://www.prostatecancerstaging.org To learn more about prostate cancer visit http://www.pcri.org To download the free Staging Guide visit http://www.pcri.org/prostate-cancer-staging 0:38 Radiation therapy technology has changed dramatically in the past decade. Past concerns that doctors and patients had about radiation have been resolved. One concern is that the radiation would cause a new cancer, but we now know that this occurs only in extremely rare cases often decades after the treatment, and we are able to detect these types of cancer sooner. Incontinence used to be a concern, but in modern times this side effect is more often associated with radical prostatectomy than with radiation. It is rare to get incontinence from radiation therapy. Intestinal burns were a concern with older radiation therapy, but modern technology is more accurate and FDA approved treatments are available to protect the rectum from radiation. 2:14 Short-term side effects of radiation therapy. Mild to moderate fatigue can be a side effect of radiation therapy. Radiation therapy can cause soreness around the area being treated by radiation. If this side effect becomes intolerable, men will often take a holiday from the radiation treatment and resume at a later date. Long-term radiation protocols can be inconvenient since many forms of radiation have to be administered five days a week for a few months. 3:12 Long-term side effects. Impotence can develop in the long term from radiation therapy. It is common. Occurring in up to 50% of men treated with radiation therapy. After treatment, men will experience dry orgasms since the prostate is what creates semen. Men may become infertile after treatment, although having children through artificial insemination is typically still possible. 4:17 Rare side effects. In rare cases, urethral scarring can occur which can cause a blockage called a urethral stricture. The treatment for this can in some cases cause incontinence. Treatment for strictures should be performed by specialists. The bladder base can get irritated from radiation therapy, and this can cause greater urinary urgency, greater frequency, and waking up in the middle of the night to urinate more often. If these problems are preexisting, they can be made worse by radiation therapy. 5:57 Side effects are less common when the treatment is performed by a competent radiation therapist.

Body Scans for Prostate Cancer | Prostate Cancer Staging Guide

Mark Scholz, MD discusses new PET scan technology and compares it with older but more common full-body scanning techniques. To learn more about prostate cancer visit http://www.pcri.org To download the free Staging Guide visit http://www.pcri.org/prostate-cancer-staging Dr. Scholz discusses the use of PET Technetium-99 bone scans, CT scans, and full body MRI scans in newly diagnosed patients and patients with advanced disease. Bone scans are useful for prostate cancer management since it is the primary place that prostate cancer will spread. CT and MRI are more suited for detecting metastatic prostate cancer in soft tissues such as the lymph nodes. However, these scans are not very sensitive and function best when the PSA is already high. Existing body scans have limitations in terms of their sensitivity, a new FDA approved PET scan called Axumin (fluciclovine f-18) is available for prostate cancer patients. This scan provides useful information about the nature and extent of the disease with better resolution. This creates a new disease space known as oligometastatic disease, where the patient doesn't yet have widespread disease and still has a chance for cure. Additionally, other highly sensitive PET scan technology which although not yet FDA approved is readily available off-label and through clinical trials. These scans can detect early metastatic cancer, and quick intervention can lead to a cure. To learn more visit www.pcri.org and download PCRI's staging guide.

Focal Therapy for Prostate Cancer | Prostate Cancer Staging Guide
 
07:01
PCRI’s Executive Director, Mark Scholz, MD, discusses the use of focal therapy for men with prostate cancer. He elaborates on the pro’s and cons of the different focal treatments and compares them with standard whole gland treatment. Don’t know your stage? Take the quiz: Visit http://www.prostatecancerstaging.org To learn more about prostate cancer visit http://www.pcri.org To download the free Staging Guide visit http://www.pcri.org/prostate-cancer-staging 0:48 Why choose focal therapy? The main reason that focal therapy is attractive is that side effects tend to be substantially lower. 1:24 Types of focal therapy: Focal radiation, seed implant or SBRT, laser treatments, cryotherapy, HIFU, and radiofrequency ablation are all types of focal treatments. Each uses a different method to ablate (destroy) prostate tissue. 1:56 Factors that can affect your focal therapy choice. The experience of the doctor is extremely important. Perhaps more so than the actual method itself. But, there are significant differences between the different treatments. Cryotherapy, for example, uses liquid argon in a probe to freeze the gland, circulates warm water, in two cycles. Since tissue resists freezing, the transition between frozen and nonfrozen tissue is gradual. Compared with a treatment like a laser ablation, this transition zone is very distinct. So with cryotherapy, more of the gland must be frozen to ensure that all the cancer is treated. Whereas with laser, there is the potential for less of a margin to be necessary. This doesn’t necessarily correlate to better cure rates, it's just an example of how different treatments have different challenges. None have been proven to be superior to all other forms of focal therapy. 3:35 Determining if one should consider focal therapy. Not all patients are eligible for focal therapy, such as patients with large or bilateral tumors (tumors that are on both sides of the gland). Additionally, the tumor must be easily seen on imaging scans to provide a viable target for the focal therapy. 4:47 Drawbacks of focal therapy. It’s a new form of treatment and many doctors who are offering it, don’t have enough experience to ensure good results. Many focal treatments are not covered by insurance, whereas other stander prostate cancer treatments are fully covered. Since a part of the gland is left untreated, they will have to be on active surveillance. 5:55 Conclusion. There is a concern that cure rates would be lower with focal therapy simply because it doesn’t treat the whole gland, but with good imaging and a generous margin, cure rates should be comparable to standard types of treatment, with the benefit of significantly lower side effects. Focal therapy will be a more popular type of treatment in the future.

Active Surveillance for Prostate Cancer | Prostate Cancer Staging Guide
 
07:38
PCRI’s Executive Director, Mark Scholz, MD, gives an overview of active surveillance, a monitoring strategy for men with low-grade prostate cancer. He talks about why it is done, who is eligible and how it is performed. Don’t know your stage? Take the quiz: Visit http://www.prostatecancerstaging.org To learn more about prostate cancer visit http://www.pcri.org To download the free Staging Guide visit http://www.pcri.org/prostate-cancer-staging 0:49 Why men choose active surveillance. When looking at low-grade disease, the risks and side effects of treatment are too severe to justify. Avoiding treatment can avoid complications. Technology is advancing rapidly, treatments improve, and imaging and genetic tests get more accurate as time goes on. 2:00 How active surveillance is performed. Previously, men had to have repeated random biopsy because of a lack of quality imaging. Modern 3T mpMRI is now shown to be more accurate than random biopsy. It’s less invasive, and doesn’t cause the same complications that random biopsy does. PSA is also used to monitor cancer, but it is not relied upon as heavily as scans and biopsies. PSA requires interpretation to be useful for monitoring. PSA is done every 3-6 months, and Imaging is done annually, eventually, men can graduate to every other year. 4:23 Who is eligible for active surveillance. The criteria have been evolving over the past few years. Traditionally men who have 3+3=6 were eligible for active surveillance. Modern studies show that men with 3+4=7 where the amount of grade 4 is less than 20% can do active surveillance. Generally, PSA should be below 10 depending on the size of the prostate and other prostate conditions. 5:48 Why active surveillance is controversial. Low-grade cancer is still being treated with radical therapy. It is difficult for men to withhold treatment from a condition called cancer. Additionally. Doctors are trained to give treatment, so it is more natural for them to do so. This also potentially lowers their liability. But science shows that active surveillance is safe for men who qualify for it. It is a new technology, and the medical field is just catching on. 7:18 Summary Who we are: The Prostate Cancer Research Institute (PCRI) is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization that is dedicated to helping you research your treatment options.

Erectile Dysfunction from Prostate Cancer Treatment | Prostate Cancer Staging Guide
 
05:32
PCRI’s Executive Director, Mark Scholz, MD, talks about erectile dysfunction that occurs after prostate cancer treatment. He covers the risk of side effects and practical information about how to weigh the risks and benefits of treatment. Don’t know your stage? Take the quiz: Visit http://www.prostatecancerstaging.org To learn more about prostate cancer visit http://www.pcri.org To download the free Staging Guide visit http://www.pcri.org/prostate-cancer-staging 0:26 Each treatment has a different risk of impotence. Focal treatment tends to have the least erectile side effects, radiation having an intermediate risk of side effects, and radical prostatectomy having the highest risk of impotence after treatment 1:03 The onset of erectile dysfunction varies by treatment. Radical prostatectomy causes immediate erectile dysfunction. Men typically recover over a period of time. Radiation on the other hand typically does not have an immediate effect on erectile function, but rather, erectile function after radiation will tend to worsen as time goes on. This distinction is important because the immediate erectile dysfunction after surgery can cause atrophy and scarring of the penis from a lack of use. 2:10 Erectile dysfunction can have serious psychological side effects on men. When erectile dysfunction occurs, men can lose interest in pursuing intercourse, which in turn can worsen the problem. This reality must be taken into consideration as treatment is being selected. Men still have sensation even if the erectile function is reduced. But sexual activity after treatment is different. Additionally, after any form of prostate treatment, men will have dry orgasms, which will also change the sensation of sexual activity. Many men are not informed of this fact. 4:05 Practitioners often cite favorable statistics when trying to convince men to choose one treatment over another. The reality is that most of these statistics have a different definition than one might expect. Most studies that are quoted define impotence as the inability to get an erection even when taking a drug like Viagra, also they define potency as the ability to get a “serviceable erection.” So erectile function and people’s daily lives are affected more than what the quoted statistics might suggest. You may not be told in your consultation that you will have to take Viagra-like drugs and that the quality of your erections will be reduced. 5:50 Age has a notable effect on erectile function after prostate cancer treatment. Men who are younger tend to recover better. But as men get older, they are more likely to experience worse side effects. Also, men with preexisting erectile issues will likely have much worse outcomes depending on the treatment selected.

Urinary Incontinence after Radical Prostatectomy | Prostate Cancer Staging Guide
 
07:47
PCRI’s Executive Director, Mark Scholz, MD, talks about urinary incontinence that can be a side effect of radical prostatectomy. He covers the treatments that can help to manage this side effect, from pills and medications to surgical intervention. Don’t know your stage? Take the quiz: Visit http://www.prostatecancerstaging.org To learn more about prostate cancer visit http://www.pcri.org To download the free Staging Guide visit http://www.pcri.org/prostate-cancer-staging 0:44 Why surgery causes urinary incontinence. When the surgery is performed, the prostate is removed and sews the ends of the urinary passage together. When the catheter is removed, men will be incontinent for a few weeks or months for control to return. 5-10% of men will remain incontinent permanently after treatment. 1:55 The two types of incontinence. There are two types of incontinence: Stress incontinence, and overt incontinence. Stress incontinence is where men can retain urine except when they jump, laugh, or cough. This occurs in 50% of men after RP. Kegel exercises can help improve stress incontinence. Anticholinergic medications such as Detrol, Enablex, Ditropan, and Myrbetric can help with this problem as well. 3:15 Overt incontinence is when leakage occurs all the time. In unskilled hands, RP can cause this issue in up to 30-40% of men. Going to a center of excellence can reduce this statistic to less than 10%. 3:42 Treatment for overt incontinence. Surgical intervention is typically required. For milder cases, a sling procedure typically can help solve the issue. If you go this route, ensure that your urologist has experience in this area. Artificial sphincters involve the placement of a cuff around the urethra with a control mechanism implanted in the scrotum. When a man needs to relieve himself, the cuff releases pressure on the urethra and allows the flow of urine. This treatment tends to be highly effective for overt incontinence. 5:03 Other urinary side effects. Climacturia, where men ejaculate urine after RP occurs in about 20% of men after surgery, but this side effect is not mentioned very often. Ensure that you discuss this potential side effect with your urologist before your procedure. A urethral stricture can happen when scar tissue develops in the urethral passage after surgery. This scar tissue can cause a blockage. Treatment for stricture can cause incontinence if the scar tissue is damaged from the treatment for stricture. Thankfully, this only occurs in about 2-3% of men after RP. 6:47 Conclusion. RP is the only treatment for prostate cancer that commonly causes urinary incontinence. Often times with equal cure rates as the alternatives.

The Five Stages of Prostate Cancer | Prostate Cancer Staging Guide
 
05:14
In this episode, PCRI Executive Director Mark Scholz, MD Introduces the PCRI Staging System and the 5 Stages of Prostate Cancer. To learn more about prostate cancer visit http://www.pcri.org To download the free Staging Guide visit http://www.pcri.org/prostate-cancer-staging Staging is an important component of good prostate cancer care. The PCRI Staging System is a user-friendly way to categorize prostate cancer information. In contrast to other staging systems that are designed for doctors, this staging system helps patients find relevant practical information about which treatments apply to their case. To do this effectively, it is important to learn all the information that pertains to one’s case, and not waste time and energy trying to sort through the overwhelming amount of information that is available. The goal is to help patients get more from their interactions with their doctors by being informed and being able to forge the basics, getting to deeper discussions in less time. 1:18 How to find your stage The stage is determined by information input into a simple 6 question quiz. The information can be readily found in a patient’s medical records. The key components, are PSA, Gleason Score, Clinical Stage, and Imaging Scans. Link to the quiz here http://www.prostatecancerstaging.org 3:05 The Five Stages of Prostate Cancer The Five Stages of Prostate cancer are Sky, Teal, Azure, Indigo, and Royal. Each refers to a specific disease type that behaves radically different from each other. So distinct in fact, that the treatments aren’t even the same. The first 3 stages are newly diagnosed stages. Azure being the stage that behaves most similarly to other cancers. Sky, on the other hand, is scientifically shown not to spread, and thus treatment is too toxic to justify. Teal is in between where treatment may is most likely necessary, although the treatment regimen is typically less intense. The last two stages, Indigo and Royal refer to PSA relapse after treatment, and advanced cancer respectively. Each has a wide variety of effective treatments 4:05 Conclusion Staging helps doctors and patients choose a therapy that is effective, without side effects that are excessive for the intended curative outcome.

Brachytherapy is a solid option for men in this stage because studies show that it has better cure rates, lower side effect rates, and tends to be more convenient than other standard therapies. Brachytherapy used to be the most popular form of treatment, but now, other treatments reimburse better so they are typically favored by doctors. 1:13 Positives of permanent brachytherapy. This form of therapy has higher cure rates and lower side effects than surgery or external beam radiation. Seeds are administered as an outpatient procedure and can be performed in as short as 1 hour. This contrasts with the long recovery period of surgery, and the long treatment course of external beam radiation. 2:03 Negatives of seed implants. Men with preexisting urinary symptoms and men with large prostates can experience worsening of urinary symptoms. In the past, people were concerned about seeds migrating out of the prostate and exposing other tissue to the radiation. Modern technology has solved this issue, by tethering the radioactive seeds together to prevent migration. People also have the concern that since the patient has radioactive material inside them, people around them would be exposed to the radiation. The reality is that the radiation only travels 1-2 centimeters and does not leave the patient’s body. 2:48 Brachytherapy is a procedure that takes specialized skill so it is important to find a qualified practitioner. Look for a doctor who does the procedure regularly. 3:24 Summary. Brachytherapy has fewer side effects, higher cure rates, and more convenience than other forms of therapy. It is not always mentioned up front because it doesn’t reimburse as well for doctors, but it is a solid form of treatment for men with the Teal stage of prostate cancer.

PCRI’s Executive Director, Mark Scholz, MD, talks about the four ways that impotence can be managed after prostate cancer therapy. He gives an overview of pills, pumps, injections, and implants to counteract impotence. Learn more pills, penile injection vacuum pumps, and more with Dr. Stephen Auerbach and Dr. Mark Moyad: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qFMbYrT0nEU Don’t know your stage? Take the quiz: Visit http://www.prostatecancerstaging.org To learn more about prostate cancer visit http://www.pcri.org To download the free Staging Guide visit http://www.pcri.org/prostate-cancer-staging 0:29 Viagra, Cialis, Levitra, and Stendra, are all oral medications that can help men get erections after prostate cancer treatment, and they tend to work in most people. They do sometimes have side effects, such as a stuffy nose, headaches, changes in vision, or low blood pressure depending on other medications that a man may be taking. 1:27 Options If Pills Do Not Work. One option is a vacuum erection device. This is a device that uses vacuum pressure to draw blood into the penis, which is then held in place with an elastic band at the base of the penis. This is effective for many men, but it can be a cumbersome process, and thus is less likely to be used. 2:25 Penile Injections. Injection therapy is highly effective for getting serviceable erections for men in whom pills don’t work. The process involves injecting the medicine directly into the side of the penis with a small needle. If men can tolerate the needle, and the process of self-injection, it is easier to implement than a VED. It is important to find a good urologist who is well versed in training men to use injection therapy. With proper instruction, injection therapy can restore erections to pretty much any man. 3:34 MUSE. If men cannot tolerate needles and injection therapy, there is another option that works very well in a small percentage of men. MUSE is a little pellet that is inserted into the urethra. Experts say that men who can get partial erections on a pill, are likely to have good results with MUSE. 4:28 Penile Prosthesis. For men who don’t get results with any of the previous options can consider a prosthetic implant into the penis. Generally, the majority of people who undergo the procedure are satisfied with the results. This is an involved operation, so if one is considering going this route, they will want to find a urologist who is an expert in this procedure. 5:28 Summary. Doctors take a stepwise approach to dealing with incontinence, beginning with pills, moving on to VEDs and injection therapy, and on to penile implants.

Color Doppler Ultrasound for Prostate Cancer | Prostate Cancer Staging Guide
 
06:33
In this episode, PCRI Executive Director Mark Scholz, MD discusses the use of Color Doppler ultrasound for managing prostate cancer. To learn more about prostate cancer visit http://www.pcri.org To download the free Staging Guide visit http://www.pcri.org/prostate-cancer-staging Color Doppler ultrasound imaging is different from a standard ultrasound, as it can see details inside the prostate that are useful for detecting and imaging prostate cancer. 1:05 How color Doppler is performed. Color Doppler is a 10-15 minute office procedure. Dr. Scholz explains practical information about the procedure. 1:45 Screening Diagnosis and staging with CDU. Color Doppler ultrasound is useful for screening for prostate cancer. The size of the prostate can be determined to enable doctors and patients to calculate the PSA density, a useful metric that can determine what a normal PSA level is for a patient. Color Doppler can be used to guide a targeted biopsy at suspicious areas, allowing for fewer biopsy samples to be taken. This imaging study can help stage the disease and determine the extent or any spread outside the capsule. It is also useful as an ongoing way to monitor patients who are on active surveillance. 3:58 Practical Considerations. Color Doppler ultrasound requires a skill set that is not common. Patients must take it upon themselves to determine whether or not the technician is qualified to use this technology. They can accomplish this by asking about the training and experience of the doctor or technician performing the procedure. 4:43 CDU vs multiparametric MRI. There are many differences between these two imaging studies. Ultrasound is quicker and more convenient, but MRI is becoming more standardized and widely available. mpMRI also has advantages in detecting high-grade cancer. 5:51 Summary. Color Doppler is useful, but it is not widely available. If one is to pursue this type of imaging they must find a center of excellence.

HDR Brachytherapy for the Teal Stage of Prostate Cancer | Prostate Cancer Staging Guide
 
08:03
PCRI’s Executive Director, Mark Scholz, MD, talks about temporary radioactive seed implants as a treatment for men with the Teal stage of prostate cancer. He covers the pros and cons of the treatment, discusses practical considerations, and compares it to other standard treatments for Teal. Don’t know your stage? Take the quiz: Visit http://www.prostatecancerstaging.org To learn more about prostate cancer visit http://www.pcri.org To download the free Staging Guide visit http://www.pcri.org/prostate-cancer-staging 0:21 There are two types of radioactive seed implants, permanent, and temporary. Permanent seeds, which are more popular, are placed in an outpatient procedure whereas temporary seeds are administered while the patient is in the hospital. A top priority when considering brachytherapy of any kind is finding an experienced doctor who will do the procedure. Cure rates and side effects between permanent and temporary seeds are comparable. 1:22 Adding external beam radiation to a seed implant. Men with Basic Teal, as laid out in the PCRI staging guide typically doesn’t need external beam radiation, however, men with High Teal should consider adding a course of external beam radiation because studies show better disease control. 2:06 What are temporary seeds? Catheters are placed into the prostate through the perineum, the skin between the scrotum and the anus. A radioactive iridium seed is placed in the catheters and slowly drawn out. This cycle is repeated every 6-8 hours or so. The catheters have to remain in place throughout the hospital visit. Temporary seeds are a more involved procedure than permanent seeds. 3:27 Advantages of temporary seeds. There is some suggestion that HDR brachytherapy can have better anti-cancer effects due to the higher rate that the radiation is delivered. With permanent seeds, the seeds can only be placed in the gland, whereas with temporary seeds the catheters can be placed around the gland which can help the doctor steer the radiation outside the prostate. This is especially important if the seminal vesicles need to be treated. 4:19 Side effects of brachytherapy. Side effects between permanent and temporary seeds are similar. There is a risk of erectile dysfunction, of inflammation of the urethra (urethritis). Urethritis is typically a short-term side effect, with the issue resolving in about 3-8 weeks after treatment. In a small percentage of men, this problem could present as a long-term side effect. When using an experienced doctor, this side effect can occur in 5-15% of men treated. A small percentage of these men can experience urethral scarring or stricture. The treatment for this can sometimes lead to incontinence. This is rare, happening in 1-3% of brachytherapy patients. 5:49 Monitoring for relapse after brachytherapy. When men have a radical prostatectomy, the PSA should be zero since there is no more prostate tissue. After radiation, the prostate is left in place and can still make low levels of PSA. Typically if the PSA goes above 1 after radiation, this is a concern. A phenomenon associated with radiation therapy is the “PSA bump” this is the result of delayed inflammation of the prostate. This can lead to PSA levels that fluctuate unpredictably. It is important to factor this in when trying to detect a recurrence with PSA after radiation. This can occur in 25-30% of men up to 3 years after radiation treatment and can cause confusion if one is not aware of this phenomenon. 7:06 Conclusion. Seed implants are a good option for men with Basic or High Teal, since the cure rates are higher, and have favorable side effects compared to other forms of treatment. It is important to find an experienced physician to perform the treatment.

Overview of Prostate Cancer Side Effects | Prostate Cancer Staging Guide
 
06:32
PCRI’s Executive Director, Mark Scholz, MD, gives an overview of side effects of prostate cancer treatments like radical prostatectomy, and radiation therapy. He defines how medical professionals define side effects and what it looks like in reality. Don’t know your stage? Take the quiz: Visit http://www.prostatecancerstaging.org To learn more about prostate cancer visit http://www.pcri.org To download the free Staging Guide visit http://www.pcri.org/prostate-cancer-staging 0:32 The three common treatment side effects. The most common side effects of prostate cancer treatment are impotence, incontinence, and gastrointestinal issues. These issues are important because they affect men’s daily life. It is important to understand side effects because many men can avoid immediate treatment and the associated side effects. 1:34 Definitions of impotence. Most medical studies are based on the definition that if you can get an erection using viagra, you aren’t considered impotent. These studies only consider men impotent if they can’t get an erection taking viagra. Many men after treatment have to take viagra to get erections. Few men consider their erectile quality to be the same as before treatment. 3:22 Definitions of incontinence. The medical community defines incontinence as constant leakage, requiring 2 or more pads per day. It doesn’t include minor leakage or stress incontinence or climacturia (ejaculation of urine at the time of orgasm). 4:32 Gastrointestinal burns. This is less of a concern with modern technology. An FDA approved process where a gel is injected to move the rectum away from the prostate to protect it from radiation. It is still a concern from inexperienced practitioners. 5:20 Conclusions. Men with low-risk disease should avoid treatment because of the severity of the side effects. For men who need treatment, it is highly important to find skilled practitioners because the risk and severity of side effects are much lower.

Overview of the Teal Stage of Prostate Cancer | Prostate Cancer Staging Guide
 
04:30
PCRI’s Executive Director, Mark Scholz, MD, talks about the Teal Stage of prostate cancer, also known as intermediate-risk prostate cancer. He breaks this stage down into three sub-stages and covers the best treatment for each one. Don’t know your stage? Take the quiz: Visit http://www.prostatecancerstaging.org To learn more about prostate cancer visit http://www.pcri.org To download the free Staging Guide visit http://www.pcri.org/prostate-cancer-staging 0:25 The PCRI breaks Teal into 3 sub-stages, Low Teal, Basic Teal, and High Teal. Low Teal is similar to the Sky Stage, and High Teal is similar to the Azure Stage, as such, Teal has the broadest range of treatment decisions and spans a variety of disease behavior. 1:03 The stage and sub-stage is determined by the PSA, digital rectal exam, and the Gleason score. Low Teal consists of a PSA less than 10, small or no nodule one DRE (T1a or T2a), Gleason of 3+4=7. No more than 2 cores with 3+4=7, and up to half of the biopsy cores replaced with cancer. Basic Teal has all the same criteria as Low Teal but can have any amount of cancer replacement in the biopsy, and up to half of the biopsy cores can be replaced with cancer. High teal is when the Gleason score is still 7, but either the PSA is greater than 10 and/or the clinical stage is higher than T2a and/or the Gleason score is 4+3=7. 1:50 Science has determined the optimal treatment for each of these sub-stages, in terms of side effects and disease control. It is important to know your substage so you can appropriately select the best treatment. 2:20 Men with Low Teal can pursue active surveillance like patients with the Sky Stage. This is beneficial because side effects can be avoided altogether as long as the disease remains in the Low Teal category. 2:44 Men with Basic Teal have the most options to sort through. Their disease can be controlled by a monotherapy (a single treatment) alone, and they can avoid the side effects of combination therapy. They can choose from many forms of external beam, and seed implant radiation, hormone therapy, or surgery. It is important that men in this sub-stage compare the side effects, and treatment cure rates, and the convenience of each of these different treatments. 3:24 Men with High Teal have a more serious form of cancer than the previous two stages. The optimal treatment choice for this case is combination therapy, which includes a short course of hormone therapy, external beam radiation, and seed implant radiation. 3:47 In summary, men with Teal have the broadest range of options for treatment, and it is especially important in this stage to know one’s substage. But this stage has a good outlook and the treatments are effective. Even if one does not get treated, they will live a long time. Since this is the case, one must give equal priority to the side effects of each treatment.

IMRT for the Teal Stage of Prostate Cancer | Prostate Cancer Staging Guide
 
04:48
PCRI’s Executive Director, Mark Scholz, MD, talks about intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) as a treatment for men with the Teal stage of prostate cancer. He covers the pros and cons of the treatment, discusses practical considerations, and compares it to other standard treatments for teal. 0:15 Intro to IMRT. IMRT became available around 2004. Previous methods of delivering external beam radiation were less accurate and caused more side effects. IMRT uses highly focused radiation beams to prevent damage to surrounding tissue. 1:06 Practical information about IMRT treatment. Men will visit a specialized facility daily from Monday to Friday with visits taking approximately 40 minutes each. Radiation is delivered and the patient goes on their way. In the past, treatment schedules would take up to 9 consecutive weeks. But modern studies show that a course of 5 weeks with stronger individual doses is as effective. 2:02 Adding other treatments to IMRT. Depending on the severity of one’s case, radioactive seed implants (brachytherapy) and or a short course of hormone therapy can be added. 2:28 Side effects of IMRT include erectile dysfunction. The incidence depends on preexisting conditions, patient age and other factors. This can occur between 30% and 85% of men. Urinary side effects such as a burning sensation, getting up at night, urgency, frequency, etc. But typically the side effects subside after a month or two. Rarely these side effects can continue for up to two years. Rectal toxicity used to be a major concern with the older forms of radiation treatment, but this problem is solved with new accurate machines and an FDA approved hydrogel spacer called SpaceOAR. 3:35 IMRT can be considered a standard treatment for Teal, that can be scaled up with seeds or hormone therapy. There are a large number of qualified practitioners and it is a standard procedure. Treatments for teal are also determined by factors such as age, preexisting urinary or erectile conditions. But generally, IMRT delivers high cure rates and low risk of side effects. Don’t know your stage?

An Overview of the Sky Stage | Prostate Cancer Staging Guide
 
08:41
PCRI’s Executive Director, Mark Scholz, MD, gives an overview of the Sky stage of prostate cancer. He describes what it is, how its managed, and potential challenges that men with Sky face. Don’t know your stage? Take the quiz: Visit http://www.prostatecancerstaging.org To learn more about prostate cancer visit http://www.pcri.org To download the free Staging Guide visit http://www.pcri.org/prostate-cancer-staging 0:32 Sky, also known as newly-diagnosed low-risk prostate cancer is when men have a PSA less than 10, Gleason score under 7, and no large lesions or nodules felt on DRE or mpMRI. Sky is a cancer by name only and doesn’t have the characteristics of other cancers. Most notably, it can’t spread. Unfortunately, the medical system hasn’t adjusted yet, and it will still say “cancer” on your report. 1:41 Active surveillance is becoming more widespread for men with Sky. There are problems with even the best curative treatments for prostate cancer including, sexual side effects, urinary side effects, bowel side effects, and also any risks associated with major operations. When there is a real threat, these risks would be justifiable. Treatment toxicity is the main reason men delay treatment in favor of active surveillance. 2:45 Practical issues with active surveillance. It is important to know for sure that you have Sky. You can verify this by sending your biopsy slides sent to a reputable center to confirm the original diagnosis. Additionally, you can get genetic testing done to further confirm your diagnosis. 3:28 How Active Surveillance is done. The standard approach is a getting PSA tested every 3-6 months, and a DRE once or twice per year, and a 12 core random biopsy every few years. Modern mpMRI is a great alternative for random biopsy since it is more accurate and can defer biopsies until they are actually needed. 4:29 Why its necessary to monitor Sky even if it is so low grade and non-threatening? New cancers can develop, and it's important to be on the lookout for those. Having one type of cancer doesn’t preclude getting another type of prostate cancer. Additionally, even the best detection methods are not 100% accurate, and can occasionally miss high-grade disease. 5:23 Active Surveillance and the medical community. Don’t be surprised if your doctor isn’t enthusiastic about recommending active surveillance. Doctors are trained to act, and fix problems. For a doctor, it is “safer” to treat than it is to withhold treatment. 6:41 Summary Who we are: The Prostate Cancer Research Institute (PCRI) is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization that is dedicated to helping you research your treatment options.
