"prostate cancer biopsy and radio therapy"

About: Churchill Hospital

had a biopsy for prostate Cancer which was virtually painless which unfortunately proved positive I had radio therapy treatment for 37 days and I thought the staff were very efficient professional very friendly and reassuring I would find it very difficult to fault any of them I still have my first follow up appointment to come the only thing I would like to have had before I had my radio therapy would have been more information ie hormone injection every twelve weeks (I was told every 3 months)what creams to use to minimize effects of the radio therapy and what types of cream to avoid and the use of Simple soap I was informed a few weeks into my treatment but would have liked to have know before hand. I would like to thank all the staff for all their help and kindness and keep up the good work
