Treatment With A Doctors Opinion
When diagnosed for prostate cancer the next step is treatment of the many
types of treatment, the one recommend for prostate cancer is the radiation
The two types of treatment for prostate cancer are brachy therapy and
external radiation therapy.Brachy therapy, the first one for prostate
cancer, involves the implanting of tiny radio active capsules inserted
into the prostate gland. The seeds work by emitting a stream of radiation
which kills the malignant tumor.
The procedure can be done on an out patient basis and takes about 45 minutes
to one hour. In terms of recovery, the patient can be discharged the very
same day and can resume his daily routine within a few days.
External radiation therapy is quite different. This is recommended only
for the tumor that has already spread through the prostate capsule to
surrounding tissues. It is also given an out patient basis for many weeks.
It is the doctor alone who can decide on the particular type of treatment
that you will have dependant on a number of factors like your age, physical
condition and the progress of cancer to the surrounding areas.
