Prostate Cancer Invading the Seminal Vesicle; Prognosis and Treatment
Posted in the Prostate Cancer Forum
#1 May 29, 2011
I have recently heard from many new friends on some patient forums with concerns about seminal vesicle involvement by prostate cancer. Often times, when giving a patient his pathology result after a prostatectomy, the urologist will mention the seminal vesicle but not explain its significance or, more importantly, the significance of involvement of the seminal vesicle by prostate cancer. In this post, I want to shed some light on what the seminal vesicles are, why it is important to know if prostate cancer invades them, and what can be done once seminal vesicle involvement is determined after a prostatectomy.
