Prostate Cancer Treatments UK Specialist
Prostate cancer is the second most common cause of cancer death in men in the UK. Each year about 35,000 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer and 10,000 die from the disease. Prostate cancer is less common in men under the age of 50 years. After positive prostate biopsy for cancer various treatment options will be discussed with you in detail.
- Active monitoring, this requires a PSA monitoring along with regular assessment by your surgeon. You may also require repeat prostate biopsy.
- Radical prostatectomy involves operation to remove the prostate gland. The aim is to cure the cancer. This procedure can be carried out either open, laparoscopic or assisted with robotic technique.
- Radiotherapy. This involves a course of radiotherapy treatment on the prostate, with intent of curing the cancer. This could be either external beam or with radioactive implants (brachytherapy)
- Hormonal treatment with injections and oral medication is used in more advanced disease to control the cancer.
