Prostatic Malignancy (Ca)

What Is It ?

Prostate cancer develops in a gland in the male reproductive system. Most prostate cancers are slow growing; however, there are cases of aggressive prostate cancers. The cancer cells may spread from the prostate to other parts of the body, particularly the bones and lymph nodes. Prostate cancer may cause difficulty in urinating and sometimes it may remain asymptomatic and is detected on routine PSA screening. Symptoms can potentially develop during later stages of the disease. Rates of detection of prostate cancers vary widely across the world. South and East Asia detects these cancers less frequently.

Preparation

Treatment options for prostate cancer with curative intent include surgery, radiation therapy and proton therapy. Other treatments, such as hormonal therapy, chemotherapy, cryosurgery and high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) also exist. The treatment option to be selected depends on the stage of the disease. The treatment option varies from patient to patient.

How It's Done

At MPUH we offer a holistic approach to the management of prostate cancer. In advanced prostate cancer a option of hormonal therapy and at times chemotherapy is offered. HIFU may also be option in selected cases. We have crossed 80 cases of laparoscopic radical prostatectomy. The advantage of this procedure is that it offers a equivalent results with minimal morbidity as compared to open approach.

Robotic Prostatectomy is the first choice for treatment of localized prostate cancer in the United States, and is rapidly being chosen by more men, as well as their doctors, worldwide. Robotic procedure is a minimally invasive, robotic-assisted surgical procedure that removes the cancerous prostate gland and related structures

The da Vinci System available at MPUH Nadiad enables surgeons to perform even the most complex and delicate procedures through very small incisions with unmatched precision.

Risks

Although there is no consensus on who should get PSA done, it is advisable that all male patients above the age of 40 should get PSA done. This has been the policy in most of the western world.
