Orthopaedic Surgeon, Joint Replacement 's  Response
Hello,
Thanks for your query.
The only treatment which can result in "cure" is surgery. The other options including radiation therapy are done assuming to cure the disease as there is no 100% sure shot way of knowing whether the disease has been eradicated or not. Having said that, surgery of the prostate is not an easy task. Radical prostaectomy is associated with complications, especially urinary incontinence. The best approach now-a-days is a robotic radical prostacectomy and is available in a few centers in your country. Radiation is also an equally good option.
I do hope that you have found something helpful and I will be glad to answer any further query.
Take care
