Prostrate Cancer Spreading and Seed Implants
Does prostate cancer spread to other parts of the body? Does seed implant shrink the prostate gland?
Prostate cancer can spread to the pelvic lymph nodes and also to bone, typically in the pelvic region. More advanced disease will spread to the lungs and other vital organs. Seed implantation will significantly reduce the size of the prostate.
