Probably you have undergone a radical prostate brachytherapy. At present it is more important to know the disease status. What is your present PSA value? what was the PSA value after brachytherapy? It is not very clear to me what scar creates the problem to you? anyway disease may also have similar features. Consult your oncologist.
