Prostate cancer usually occurs in older men and forms in tissues of the prostate (a gland in the male reproductive system found below the bladder and in front of the rectum). It is a slow growing cancer and may extend as it spreads to nearby tissues and organs and then metastasizes to other more distant organs (lymph nodes, bones, lungs, etc.) via the bloodstream.

  • 3. Visit us at: www.indiacarez.com Surgery : Surgery is a common choice to try to cure prostate cancer if it is not thought to have spread outside the gland (stage T1 or T2 cancers). The main type of surgery for prostate cancer is known as a radical prostatectomy. In this operation, the surgeon removes the entire prostate gland plus some of the tissue around it, including the seminal vesicles. A radical prostatectomy can be done in different ways. • Radical Prostatectomy Surgery : Radical prostatectomy surgery aims to remove the whole prostate gland and the near by lymph nodes. After the prostate gland is taken out through an incision, a catheter (a narrow rubber tube) is put in the bladder to carry urine out of the body until the area heals.

  • 4. Visit us at: www.indiacarez.com • Laparoscopic Radical Prostatectomy : The surgeon deploys a Laproscope a thin tube with a tiny camera . Its a minimally invasive procedure where small cuts are made near the tumor site, and thin tools are used to remove the tumor and surrounding tissue. Usually patient are given general anaesthesia or an epidural or spinal anaesthesia that blocks nerve routes from the spine and numbs the area. If the cancer spreads outside the esophagus, it often goes to the lymph nodes first. (Lymph nodes are small, bean-shaped structures that are part of the body's immune system.) Esophageal cancer can also spread to almost any other part of the body, including the liver, lungs, brain, and bones.

  • 5. Visit us at: www.indiacarez.com Laser Surgery for Enlarged Prostate Cancer : Green Light Laser PVP : Photoselective Vaporization of the Prostate (PVP), also known as the Green Light Laser, has emerged as the treatment of choice for most patients having surgery for BPH. It is minimally invasive in the sense that all the work to open the prostate channel is made through the penis, without an incision on the abdomen. The obstructive prostate tissue is vaporized by the directed laser beam. This is done under spinal or general anesthesia. The advantages of this approach over the traditional TURP (transurethral resection of the prostate) are many:     Rapid urine flow improvement. Quick return to normal activities. Virtually bloodless procedure. Outpatient procedure in otherwise healthy patients.

  • 6. Visit us at: www.indiacarez.com Radiation therapy : Radiotherapy for prostate cancer is usually given as external beam radiotherapy. There are other, newer types of external beam radiotherapy. These include conformal radiotherapy (CRT) and intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT). Some men can have brachytherapy (also called internal radiotherapy). This is when small radioactive seeds are inserted into the tumour. It’s only suitable for a small number of men with locally advanced prostate cancer. Whether it’s given or not depends on how much the cancer may have spread beyond the prostate gland. Brachytherapy is usually given in combination with external radiotherapy. Depending on your situation, your doctor may suggest you have hormonal therapy before or after your radiotherapy.

  • 7. Visit us at: www.indiacarez.com Hormone therapy : Hormone therapy is also called androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) or androgen suppression therapy. The goal is to reduce levels of male hormones, called androgens, in the body, or to prevent them from reaching prostate cancer cells. The main androgens are testosterone and dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Most of the body’s androgens come from the testicles, but the adrenal glands also make a small amount. Androgens stimulate prostate cancer cells to grow. Lowering androgen levels or stopping them from getting into prostate cancer cells often makes prostate cancers shrink or grow more slowly for a time. However, hormone therapy alone does not cure prostate cancer and eventually, it stops helping.

  • 8. Visit us at: www.indiacarez.com Chemotherapy : Chemotherapy uses drugs to kill rapidly growing cells, including cancer cells. Chemotherapy can be administered through a vein in your arm, in pill form or both. Chemotherapy may be a treatment option for men with prostate cancer that has spread to distant areas of their bodies. Chemotherapy may also be an option for cancers that don't respond to hormone therapy. Multiple new chemotherapy drugs have recently been approved for treatment of progressive, metastatic prostate cancer.
