Secondary squamous cell prostate cancer after prostate brachytherapy treatment.
Summary of "Secondary squamous cell prostate cancer after prostate brachytherapy treatment."
Abstract This report describes the case of a patient with prostate cancerat the age of 59 years, who was treated by interstitial prostate brachytherapy with iodine-125 seeds. Ten years later, he developed a probable secondary squamous cell cancer in his prostate.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
A glycoprotein that is a kallikrein-like serine proteinase and an esterase, produced by epithelial cells of both normal and malignant prostate tissue. It is an important marker for the diagnosis of prostate cancer.
Prostatic Secretory Proteins
Proteins secreted by the prostate gland. The major secretory proteins from the human prostate gland include PROSTATE-SPECIFIC ANTIGEN, prostate-specific acid phosphatase, prostate-specific membrane antigen, and prostate-specific protein-94.
Ultrasound, High-intensity Focused, Transrectal
Tissue ablation of the PROSTATE performed by ultrasound from a transducer placed in the RECTUM. The procedure is used to treat prostate cancer (PROSTATIC NEOPLASMS) and benign prostatic hypertrophy (PROSTATIC HYPERPLASIA).
Transurethral Resection Of Prostate
Removal of all or part of the PROSTATE, often using a cystoscope and/or resectoscope passed through the URETHRA.
A family of trypsin-like SERINE ENDOPEPTIDASES that are expressed in a variety of cell types including human prostate epithelial cells. They are formed from tissue prokallikrein by action with TRYPSIN. They are highly similar to PROSTATE-SPECIFIC ANTIGEN. EC 126.96.36.199.
