Brachytherapy and HDR treatments for advanced prostate cancer completed in March, 2007. This past week experiencing off and on bleeding, with some clots, from the penis. Consulted both family doctor and urologist. Indicated it was probably from his prostate and did not seem concerned. No UTI. Is this a common occurrence? Should we have further testing done; i.e., scope or CT scan? Obviously, I am quite concerned and just trying to assure myself that this is a possible side effect of the radiation. Thank you.
