If the PSA is less than 0.2 after surgery or less than 0.5 after brachytherapy, does that mean a man is cured?

No, but it means that there is a good chance of it. Since prostate cancer is slow-growing, it may take years for any remaining prostate cancer cells to grow enough to change the PSA. We generally need to see the PSA stay down for 10 years after treatment to consider a man cured after treatment. more
