Prostate seed implant is a form of radiation therapy used to treat prostate cancer. This type of brachytherapy delivers radiation that can kill prostate cancer cells, while causing less damage to healthy surrounding tissue.

How The Prostate Seed Implant Is Delivered

A prostate seed implant involves placing small radioactive “seeds” in the prostate close to the cancer cells.

Are There Different Types of Prostate Seed Implants?

The amount of radioactive seeds delivered and frequency depends on the aggressiveness of the cancer and overall treatment plan of a patient.
