When it is caught and treated early, prostate cancer has high survival rates. Managing the side-effects of treatment then becomes a key consideration for men in deciding when to start treatment. At Rio Bravo Bravo Cancer Center, our patient’s quality of life before, during and after treatment is a priority. For patients receiving radiation therapy for prostate cancer, side effects such as rectal pain, rectal bleeding and diarrhea can occur when the rectum is inadvertently exposed to radiation. Rio Bravo Bravo Cancer Center is proud to offer the SpaceOAR System – rectal protection for prostate cancer radiation therapy patients. SpaceOAR reduces the likelihood and severity of side effects during and after treatment, making the decision to start radiation therapy an easier one. Watch patient stories.
