Cancer growing in the prostate gland called prostate cancer. Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death among men in the United States about one in six men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime, but only one man in 34 will die of the disease.
In the early stages, surgery and radiation to kill or attempt to kill cancer cells or shrink the tumor to be. Doctors usually advise you to undergo a surgery. Then, given to take medication. Many studies have shown that this combination of pain experienced by men greatly, especially when prostate cancer has spread to bones decreases. Cancer does not go away completely, you will live longer. To see a doctor and you would be in a better position to decide, according to their own personal values and health. Medications can have many side effects, including hot flashes and loss of sexual desire. Urinary incontinence can be a possible complication of surgery.
Also, uses a form of treatment for early stage cancer is high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU). This method is under anesthesia (or using a local spinal) and a probe into the prostate through the rectum. A focused ultrasound beam high, is to be used to increase the temperature in the region of focus, and thus eliminate cancerous cells.
another option is the treatment of prostate cancer radiotherapy. This treatment for prostate cancer involves the use of high energy radiation of protons, neutrons, gamma rays and X-rays and other sources to kill cancer cells and shrink the existing tumor. There are two ways that the radiation therapy may be administered as a treatment for prostate cancer. The first is that of a machine outside the body as external beam radiotherapy, or fill for the radioactive that is placed in the body near where the cancer. This is known as internal light.
A relatively new technique that is still being evaluated is known as cryosurgery. During cryosurgery, which is carried out under cooling anesthesia are probes into the prostate with ultrasound and cancer cells are killed by freezing.
The form used in the treatment of early-stage cancer is high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU). This method is under anesthesia (or using a local spinal) and a probe into the prostate through the rectum. A focused ultrasound beam high, is to be used to increase the temperature in the region of focus, and thus eliminate cancerous cells.
For hormone therapy for prostate cancer in late stage is used and this is designed to attack the cancer itself, but the male hormones (especially testosterone), which cancer cells need to grow target. Where hormone therapy is ineffective, it is recommended radiation therapy or systemic chemotherapy.
The result of prostate cancer varies greatly, especially because the disease in older men who may have their activities in a variety of diseases or conditions other complications, such as heart or respiratory disease, or disabilities, or greatly reduce as is immobilization. Whatever the stage of your cancer, it is important to consider all the options carefully and weigh the advantages, disadvantages and risks of each carefully before the treatment is best for you
