Blacks report better sexual, urinary function after prostate surgery than whites

h radiation therapy experienced no significant differences in their recovery of sexual, urinary or bowel function after treatment, Hamilton says. The radiation therapy group included those who had received external beam radiation therapy, as well as those who underwent brachytherapy-the use of radioactive "seeds." Researchers caution, though, that their sample size might not have been large enough to discern differences among ethnic groups in those receiving radiotherapy.

Hamilton notes that among African-American men, more patients tend to opt for radiation therapy. "There is a perception that enters into the choice of radiotherapy-that it will have less effect on sexual function," she says.

Yet men in PCOS who underwent prostate cancer surgery reported worsened sexual function six months after surgery, but then experienced gradually recovering sexual function through the five-year mark. Men who received radiation therapy actually saw their sexual function gradually decline throughout the five years following surgery.
