Can Transurethral prostatectomy be used to treat prostate cancer?
Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Prostate Cancer group.
Update to this question and coming from my Mayo surgical team: "We do not use transurethral prostatectomy for treatment of prostate cancer as this does not treat the entire prostate."
