Treatment options: 70yr, PSA 4.3, G8, Stage 2
Hi,

My father (70 years old) was diagnosed with prostate cancer after a biopsy.  His PSA went from 2 to 4.3 within 12 month.  Tests confirmed his cancer has a rating of Gleason 8 at stage 2, so it's local for now.

He has a mild-high blood pressure but relatively in good shape for his age.

What is the pro and con of radiation treatment versus prostatectomy.  
Is it possible to try the radiation treatment first?  And if not successful, treat with prostatectomy?

What is the quality of life impact with radiation therapy?
Does the robotic-assisted prostatectomy has a higher success rate?

Thank you.
