Reported rates of both complications vary widely depending on how they are assessed, by whom, and how long after surgery, as well as the setting e. Each session lasted between 1. The protein ZIP1 is responsible for the active transport of zinc into prostate cells.
Prostate cancer is very uncommon in men younger than 45, but becomes more common with advancing age. Some men objected to numbers shown both as a percentage and minus that percentage to rigorously frame each in both positive and negative.Radiation therapy is commonly used in prostate cancer treatment.
It may be used instead of surgery or after surgery in early stage prostate cancer (adjuvant radiotherapy).
