Prostate Cancer

Hi, My father has been diagnosed with Prostate cancer stage T2 and Gleason grading 3+3=6. How bad is this and is the " seed"  injection, injected into the prostate an effective way to manage the cancer. He is 58 yrs old.

Thank you.

Hallo J
T2 means the cancer is contained in the prostate gland, and Grading 3 is a well differentiated tumour (the least differentiated it is, the more dangerous). Seeding with radioactive pellets is a very effective treatment.
