PROSTATE CANCER



  1. PROSTATE CANCER


Prostate Cancer and its Management

 

 

 

Prostate Cancer is one of the most common cancers affecting middle aged and elderly men. Very often the cancer remains silent till a very late stage. Therefore every male after the age of fifty years should have an early PSA (Prostate specific antigen) evaluation. Once elevated PSA is detected, then a Uro- surgeon evaluates the patient and advises a trans-rectal prostate biopsy when indicated.

 

If cancer is confirmed, then the extent of spread of the cancer is confirmed by an MRI Prostate and a Bone scan. For fit patients, the best therapy is by surgery. This surgery is best performed by laparoscopy. Laparoscopic Radical Prostate surgery provides excellent quality of life for most patients. Therefore all men should be aware of their prostate health.
