The huge flaw in this study is that if the men finished their radiation treatment 15 years ago (at least), the state-of-the-art today in radiation therapy is completely different (and exponentially better) than it was 15 or 20 years ago. I, for one, had 9 weeks of IGRT radiation therapy for early state prostate cancer a couple years ago and have no side effects at all. All functions came back within a couple months after the treatment ended. And IGRT is only one state-of-the-art method used today, and it has actually been surpassed with newer radiation technology since I got mine done. So if you underwent radiation therapy in the last century, that should not be used to recommend or not recommend radiation treatment today. And certainly not tomorrow, since there are newer and even better treatments right on the horizon.
