Prostate Cancer

Prostate Cancer

The main options for prostate cancer treatment can include:

Active Surveillance

Robotic prostatectomy for prostate cancer

 Other aspects of prostatectomy surgery

Radiotherapy
External beam radiotherapy
Permanent seed brachytherapy
Temporary (HDR) brachytherapy
Hormonal blockade
Chemotherapy (advanced , hormone resistant disease)

The choice of treatment for you will depend on many factors, including your age, PSA, grade of cancer, sexual function, extent of disease, other medical conditions and the presence or absence of distant disease. As such no blanket statement can be given recommending one treatment or the other. I can discuss the relevant options with you so that you (and your partner) are in the best position to decide. I may advise a radiotherapy opinion in addition to my urologic opinion, depending on the above factors.
