Prostate cancer. How to get cured of it other than surgery?

Why is it that if I believed doctors I would have already been dead three times? Now I have prostate cancer two doctors told me only surgery, and other suggested radiation . I refused all of these, and took two herbs that stopped the symptoms in three weeks that I had for more than a year. Yes, I could die in a couple more years as they expected, but I would rather die than have surgery.

Oncologist, Radiation 's  Response
I am extremely sorry to know the condition. I want to assure you that prostate cancer is slowly progressive disease . The treatment depends on the stage. You have not mentioned any detail of investigation. Specially serum PSA , Gleason score, and invasion size and lymph node status to be mentioned. In early stage if life expectancy is more ( like more than 10 years or 5 years depending on additional criteria) radical treatment is offered. As they have offered surgery or RT probably your disease is at early stage. Anyway if you do not want surgery then go for radiotherapy. Radiotherapy can be given dy image guided technique and is non invasive. minimal toxicity is there. Adjuvant hormone therapy will be prescribed also. There is a good chance of total tumor control. Consult your radiation oncologist.
