High Cost of Therapy

When I was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 1995 brachytherapy (seed implant radiation) was a new option. One of it's advantages was it's lower average cost compared to radical prostatectomy. $13,000 compared to $30,000. We heard from a guy lately that was billed $300,000 for a seed implant procedure and he has no insurance! There is something very wrong here. Let's call it what it is -- GREED
