Prostate Cancer Treatment

Robotic Prostatectomy

Prostate cancer is a malignant cancer that can spread to the lymph nodes, bones and other parts of the body. It is the most common cause of death in elderly men over 75 years of age.

The treatment of prostate cancer depends on the stage of the cancer and the overall health status of the patient and may include surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy and hormone therapy. Surgery is the gold standard for the treatment of prostate cancer. It involves the complete removal of the cancerous prostate gland and also helps confirm the diagnosis, by biopsy, and ascertain the need for any additional therapy.

Radiation Therapy

Radiation therapy is a procedure where high-energy rays are used to destroy cancer cells.

EBRT

External Beam Radiotherapy (EBRT) consists of a beam or multiple beams of radiation that can be used for destroying tumors and surrounding cancer cells. It contains high energy photons that target and destroy the cancer cells. The radiation beams are generated from a machine called a linear accelerator. The linear accelerator generates high-energy X-rays or electrons that destroy the tumor cells without touching the skin of the patient or the tumor tissue. Along with the cancer tissues the beam also destroys the surrounding healthy tissues.
