Greenlight Laser before radiation treatment for Prostate Cancer?

If nothing is going right....go left.

If you have obstructive voiding symptoms (slow stream, hesitancy, getting up at night, stop start stream, decrease in caliber  of  stream) and want to do radiation as your treatment of your prostate cancer it is okay to have the prostatic urethra opened by the Greenlight laser before the treatment to prevent exacerbation of your voiding symptoms after radiation. It is not advisable to do any surgical treatment of the prostate after radiation treatment of the prostate. Trust me.

It is better to cure at the beginning than at the end….my friend.

  1. How and where does one get Greenlight done before radiation therapy?
    I very much want brachytherapy and it is getting denied me because of my BPH.


    1. Not all urologists perform the Greenlight. The are other pre radiation options that your local urologist would be familiar with. The Greenlight website will have urologists who perform that procedure “near you.” J. McHugh
