This video is an informative animated presentation that explains in detail about robotic prostatectomy. If you have prostate cancer that has not spread beyond your prostate, your doctor may recommend robotic radical prostatectomy to remove your prostate gland. Prostate cancer is an abnormal growth of cells lining the tubular gland tissue inside your prostate. Your surgeon will make a small incision near your belly button and insert a plastic tube called a port. Carbon dioxide gas will be pumped into your abdomen through this port. The gas will inflate your abdomen giving your surgeon more room to see and move the surgical tools. After your abdomen is inflated a high-definition camera will be inserted into the port. Your surgeon will make additional port incisions for robotic instruments as well as for instruments used by patient side assistance. An assistant will insert all of the robotic tools through these ports. Unlike standard laparoscopic instruments, these tools can rotate 360 degrees and have more flexibility than a human wrist. Seated at a special console, your surgeon will operate the robotic arms and the camera with joystick like controls and foot pedals. Watch the video to know more in detail about robotic prostatectomy.

Surgery To Remove The Prostate Gland - Manipal Hospitals
 
03:15
Cancer of the prostate is one of the common kinds of cancer in men. Radical prostatectomy is done to remove the prostate gland including the tissue and seminal vesicles. Some lymph nodes may also be removed depending on the situation. The surgical procedure may take between 90 minutes and 4 hours. Three different approaches may be used to do the surgery. They are known as open retro pubic, open perineal and laparoscopic approaches. This video is an informative animated presentation that explains in detail about radical prostatectomy. Cancer of the prostate is one of the most common types of cancer in men. Radical prostatectomy is a surgical procedure in which the prostate gland, surrounding tissue and seminal vesicles are removed. Depending on your situation, your surgeon may also choose to remove some lymph nodes. Radical prostatectomy can take between 90 minutes and four hours. Three different approaches may be used; open retro pubic approach, open perineal approach, or laparoscopic approach. In an open retro pubic prostatectomy, the prostate is removed through an incision through a lower part of the abdomen. In an open perineal prostatectomy, the prostate is removed through an incision on the perineum which lies between the rectum and scrotum. In laparoscopic prostatectomy, your surgeon places instruments into your abdominal cavity through small keyhole incisions or ports. He or she dissects the prostate from its surrounding structures and removes the gland through one of the slightly widened ports. Watch the video to know more in detail about radical prostatectomy.

Study Shows It Really Doesn't Matter How You Treat Prostate Cancer
 
01:04
Experts said Wednesday the first controlled study comparing three different approaches to prostate cancer — radiation versus surgery versus "watchful waiting" — shows there is no truly bad choice for most men. According to NBC News, the British study won't end debates over whether prostate cancer screening is a good idea. However, it should reassure many men that it's OK to make their own decisions about whether and how to treat prostate cancer if they get diagnosed. While tumors were more likely to grow and spread in men who got no treatment compared to those who did, it was still rare. It was even more rare for men to die from prostate cancer. The researchers reported in the New England Journal of Medicine that out of 1,600 men who took part in the 10-year study, just 17 died of prostate cancer. Prostate cancer is very common, showing up in 240,000 U.S. men every year. It kills about 30,000 a year. http://www.nbcnews.com/health/health-news/all-prostate-cancer-treatments-about-equally-effective-study-finds-n648471?cid=public-rss_20160914 http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

Surgery - The Best Prostate Cancer Treatment
 
01:13
Surgery - The Best Prostate Cancer Treatment The diagnosis of prostate cancer will mean a man will have many decisions to make and one of the most important decisions is whether to treat it with surgery or radiation. A decision of this magnitude must not be taken lightly and a man will need to do his research. A thorough discussion with his urologist on the pros and cons of each can guide a man on deciding what direction is best for him and his overall health. At the time of diagnosis, prostate cancer will be staged according to how much cancer a patient has, if the cancer has spread beyond the prostate to surrounding tissues and what their prostate specific antigen (PSA) level is. If the prostate cancer has not spread into surrounding tissue besides the prostate and is considered localized just within the prostate, patients do better with surgery versus radiation treatment. The reason is that patients treated with radiation are twice as likely to die from prostate cancer and one and a half times more likely to die sooner than men who had prostate cancer treated with surgery. In addition, a man who has radiation over surgery may be exposing himself to developing a secondary cancer such as bladder cancer or rectal cancer due to the possible side effects from radiation to that area of the body. If a man chooses radiation over surgery and the cancer comes back, it is extremely difficult to perform surgery after radiation. Another factor men need to consider is if the cancer is found only in the prostate, men who have their prostate removed with surgery have almost a 100% survival rate. Bottom line, all men diagnosed with prostate cancer should find a qualified, and experienced urologist who will guide them through this journey while providing individualized care.

Advice for Patients with Prostate Cancer

Just been diagnosed with Prostate Cancer? Get sound advice from Edward Weber, M.D. At pctrf.org, you can find help. Prostate Cancer takes years to develop to where it can be diagnosed. Rising PSA, Biopsy or DRE? You didn't just get prostate cancer, you have just been diagnosed with cancer. Take your time, to learn the options. Schedule appointments with specialist. Sessions with Urological Surgeons, Radiation Therapists and Medical Oncologists can help you sort through the Treatment Options. Do you choose Active Surveillance, Surgery, External Beam Radiation, Seed or Brachytherapy, Proton Therapy, Cryotherapy, Cyberknife, or some other treatment? The Prostate Cancer Treatment Research Foundation can help you with this process. On our website, we provide a simple way for you to view the results of different prostate cancer treatments across thousands of patients for as long as fifteen years. Visit our website at https://.prostatecancerfree.org Video Development - Dean Dubinsky Video Transcript: Prostate Cancer Free Foundation. Increasing Knowledge - Building Hope. Edward Weber, M.D. Medical Oncologist, Prostate Cancer Results Study Group. You’ve been diagnosed with prostate cancer. If your diagnosis came as a result of a schedule of appropriate PSA testing, it’s very likely the disease has been found early. This comes as a surprise to most men and they are quite anxious at this point. Being told you have prostate cancer is a frighting message carrying a heavy baggage The normal urge is to plunge into a “crash course” to learn how to manage this unwelcome intrusion into your life, a crash course that you are unlikely to know how to handle objectively. So … what to do?  Stop, take a deep breath, step back a bit, and think carefully. It is extremely unusual that there is any need to rush to a decision. Most cancers have been sitting quietly in your prostate and growing for 10 to 15 years, with the most aggressive ones developing over 10 or so years. So … you haven’t just “gotten” prostate cancer. You just have been “diagnosed” with a cancer that you have been living with for a long time. Likely your diagnosis has been made by a biopsy performed by a urologist, an expert in the surgical management of prostate cancer. It’s extremely important for you to know that any cancer, low grade, intermediate, or high grade can be successfully treated with surgery, augmented if need be by radiation, external beam radiation therapy, permanent radioactive seed placement, for example brachytherapy, combined if indicated by external radiation, and proton therapy. In some cases cryotherapy or short course of focused radiation with Cyberknife technology is chosen.  Active surveillance is a very important option for management of low-risk cancer. It warrants serious consideration and discussion. Take your time and learn about the treatment options available to you. You may want to consider several of these. In most situations, all of these are reasonable options. But for some men their individual  situations makes a particular option the better choice. Nor do all options suit every man’s emotional reaction to the diagnosis or his preferences.  So what should you do? You do not need to become an instant expert. Instead, you need to have consultations with possibly several specialists who can describe their treatments and help you decide which treatment fits you best. In the process you may well have consultations with a urological surgeon and possibly several radiation therapists each skilled in a special type of radiation therapy. If your disease is more complex, you may want an option from medical oncologist, which is what I am. It’s important to be informed, but you don't need to do this alone. That’s what the specialists are there for. This is the time for deliberation, since once treated you cannot reverse the course. After stopping, and thinking, and gaining expert guidance, then take action. Most not all of the mental fuzz of anxiety and consternation will subside. But when you have made a considered decision you will feel very comfortable.  Then you can devote your energy to the goal of successful treatment and recovery. The outcome of therapy for this disease is generally excellent, very likely much better than you might have thought. With careful deliberation on your part and treatment by experts, your will be able to make this usual good outcome your outcome. Prostate Cancer Free Foundation. https://prostatecancerfree.org

Prostate Cancer Surgery by Robot | Robot Assisted Radical Prostatectomy
 
01:01:06
www.medfreelancers.com Prostate Cancer Surgery by Robot | Robot Assisted Radical Prostatectomy Prostatectomy as a medical term refers to the surgical removal of all or part of the prostate gland. This operation is done for benign conditions that cause urinary retention, as well as for prostate cancer and for other cancers of the pelvis. There are two main types of prostatectomies. A simple prostatectomy (also known as a subtotal prostatectomy) involves the removal of only part of the prostate. Surgeons typically carry out simple prostatectomies only for benign conditions. A radical prostatectomy, the removal of the entire prostate gland, the seminal vesicles and the vas deferens, is performed for malignant cancer. There are multiple ways the operation can be done: with open surgery (via a large incision through the lower abdomen), laparoscopically with the help of a robot (a type of minimally invasive surgery), through the urethra or through the perineum. Robotic-assisted instruments are inserted through several small abdominal incisions and controlled by a surgeon. Some use the term 'robotic' for short, in place of the term 'computer-assisted'. However, procedures performed with a computer-assisted device are performed by a surgeon, not a robot. The computer-assisted device gives the surgeon more dexterity and better vision, but no tactile feedback compared to conventional laparoscopy. When performed by a surgeon who is specifically trained and well experienced in CALP, there can be similar advantages over open prostatectomy, including smaller incisions, less pain, less bleeding, less risk of infection, faster healing time, and shorter hospital stay. The cost of this procedure is higher, while long-term functional and oncological superiority have yet to be established.

Prostate Cancer Does Not Always Require Surgery
 
02:45
Until recently, a man with an elevated PSA ended up with a biopsy and radical prostatectomy if cancer was found. That is despite the fact that most prostate cancer is slow growing and most men will die from something other than their prostate cancer. The erroneous belief was that catching it early and removing the prostate was a good thing to do. Here are the numbers: 1 million biopsies each year, 240,000 diagnosed with prostate cancer, half of those diagnosed have low risk disease. The problem is 90% have either radical prostatectomy or radiation when only a small number (3-5%) will progress and spread. And a large number are left impotent, incontinent or both as a result of the treatment. Now there are a few new diagnostic tests that help separate which men have aggressive disease that requires surgery from the majority that can manage it more like a chronic disease via Active Surveillance. These include: • PCA-3 gene test -- guides the decision whether to perform a biopsy by measuring a prostate cancer specific marker in urine. It is not affected by prostate size or inflammation like PSA • Advanced Prostate MRI -- produces very clear and accurate images of the prostate and surrounding tissues to distinguish between normal and malignant areas noninvasively. If cancer is detected, a small number of guided biopsies can be done rather than a dozen or more "blind" biopsies as is the current standard • Oncotype Dx Assay -- Once a biopsy is performed, if cancer is detected this test is done on the specimen to measure genetic markers that reveal the biology and behavior of the tumor. It helps guide treatment by assessing how aggressive the tumor is and how likely it is to spread.

Penile Rehabilitation following Prostate Cancer Surgery by Dr Michael Gillman
 
32:03
Dr Gillman is articulate and educational in presenting to men and their partners about ED. ED is the inability to sustain an erection. ED is common. However, after listening to this informative video you'll better understand the treatment options and when it's best to try each option. Unfortunately, it's not well understood that an assessment of erection quality is a good idea prior to prostate cancer surgery as many factors concerning general health and lifestyle can contribute to this quality. If you are obese, smoke and your diet is not good then there is a need to correct the risk factors. Dr Gillman speaks about PDE5 Inhibitors (ie., Cialis, Levitera & Viagra); vacuum devices; penile injection therapy and penile implants. You will be impressed with the information afforded you by Dr Gillman and it gives you the necessary empowerment to take to your medical specialist or GP to get the necessary help required.

Urinary Incontinence After Prostate Cancer Surgery
 
03:42
Prostate surgery carries a higher risk of incontinence for men over 70, but younger men aren't immune from incontinence either. Due to more developed pelvic floor muscles in older men, surgery is typically less damaging in younger patients. Regardless of age, I advise all of my patients to meet with a physical therapist after the procedure. By continually practicing what we call Keegel exercises, most men significantly speed up the return of continence. Erectile dysfunction is another side effect of prostate surgery that concerns most patients. Erection nerves run alongside the prostate and research has shown that peeling these nerves off can result in temporary impotence. However, as long as the neurovascular bundles are preserved then the patient should experience returned potency. Men should be mindful of their erection strength prior to surgery to accurately judge the effects of prostate removal. The surgery will likely result in damage, but the effects aren't irreversible.

Robotic Surgery to remove Prostate Cancer
 
03:31
Barry Broughton is a successful marketing executive who has traveled the world and faced a lifetime of challenges. But few challenges would be as difficult as the diagnosis he received last year of prostate cancer. Barrys cancer was diagnosed following a test called a PSA, or prostate-specific antigen test, which measures a protein produced by the prostate that is elevated in most men with prostate cancer. A rising PSA indicates the likelihood of a growing cancer, and the faster it rises, the more aggressive the cancer is likely to be. He was horrified when he heard the news. Both of my parents died of cancer, and my sister has had her breasts removed so cancer is prevalent in my family, and it was a very traumatic thing to be told, he recalls. Prostate cancer is one of the most-common cancers affecting men. Each year, 220,000 new cases are diagnosed and 29,000 men die from the disease. But that number is down from 40,000 deaths 10 years ago, potentially because of the kind of screening that Barry received. Barry and his physician, UCLA urologist Dr. Robert Reiter, who is the director of the Prostate Cancer Treatment Program at UCLA, talked about his options for treatment, including radiation and different types of surgery. After much discussion, both Barry and Dr. Reiter felt that surgery, using the latest in robotic technology, to remove his cancerous prostate would be Barrys best choice. The technique is minimally invasive, meaning it is performed through small holes in the abdomen through which a camera and instruments are inserted. The instruments have wrist-like joints and can move in all directions, giving the surgeon maximum flexibility and accuracy of movement. In addition, the camera provides three-dimensional images, offering the surgeon an improved visual field as he works the instruments. And because a long incision is not necessary, there is much less blood loss and patients generally experience less pain and faster recovery, often returning home the next day and back to most activities within a few weeks. The efficacy of the surgery is further enhanced at UCLA by the integration of magnetic resonance imaging, which reduces the risks of leaving cancer behind and improves the chances of sexual recovery. After his surgery, Barry was up and walking the next day. He quickly regained urinary and sexual function, and, most important to him and his family, Barry is now cancer free. Theyve got the old guy still around for a while, and were looking for grandchildren one of these days, so we want to be around to be able to enjoy them, Barry says. Thats the deal.

Dr. David Samadi - Prostate cancer: Surgery vs Radiation vs CyberKnife
 
06:41
An analysis of more than a dozen studies indicate that prostate cancer patients do better with surgery vs. radiation treatment; especially men with localized prostate cancer. Patients treated with radiation are twice as likely to die from prostate cancer, one & a half times likely to die sooner than prostate cancer patients treated with surgery & exposure to radiation may end in secondary cancers such as bladder cancer and rectal cancer. Dr. David Samadi explores the details. When men are diagnosed with prostate cancer it can be extremely confusing at times picking the right treatment option as there’s a lot of information out there. Dr David Samadi says that with any cancer, surgery should be the first line of treatment. With prostate cancer surgery patients get accurate staging – i.e. how much cancer a patient has, has the cancer spread to surrounding tissues & the PSA levels which has always got to be zero. Dr. David Samadi explains that there’s a lot of misleading advertisements indicating methods such as CyberKnife is robotic radio surgery which in fact is not but only a different form of radiation treatment. He says that patients are led to believe that radiation is a viable first line of treatment & if the cancer comes back, it is extremely difficult to perform surgery after radiation. Dr. Samadi also explain why it is extremely important to weigh in the experience of the surgeon as working with the right doctor would ensure a better and faster recovery. Dr. David Samadi’s patients have a continence percentage of 95% - 97% & regular sexual functionality in about 80% of prostate cancer patients. Some prostate cancer facts: • There are over 221,000 men diagnosed each year • Almost 21,000 die of prostate cancer • If the cancer is spread outside the prostate gland, the chances of a man living longer than 5 years becomes less than 30% • If the prostate is surgically removed, the survival rate becomes almost 100% Dr. David Samadi also clarifies if there are genetic components where certain males are predisposed to having prostate cancer, why is it important not to just look at the PSA as a number but to follow a trend pattern. It’s explained what factors have to be monitored closely & at what age / PSA levels a patient should start consider a biopsy or not. Dr. Samadi explains why individualized care is of utmost importance & why patients should not be satisfied with ‘the one size fits all approach’ when it comes to Prostate cancer Surgery, Radiation & CyberKnife. _________________________________________________________________ Dr. David Samadi is the Chairman of Urology & Robotics Surgery at Lenox Hill Hospital.

Rodney Ellis, MD, performs a prostate cancer procedure utilizing the SpaceOAR® injection procedure. The SpaceOAR® System is the first product in the United States cleared as a spacer to protect the rectum in patients undergoing prostate cancer (PCa) radiotherapy. Placed through a tiny needle, the hydrogel is administered as a liquid, but quickly solidifies into a soft gel that expands the space between the prostate and rectum. The hydrogel spacer holds this space until radiotherapy is complete. The spacer then liquefies and is absorbed and cleared from the body in the patient’s urine.

Dr. David Samadi: Is HIFU a Safe Prostate Cancer Treatment Option?
 
04:32
Dr. David Samadi discusses HIFU as a treatment for prostate cancer, on Fox News. The prostate gland is located between the bladder & urethra. The prostate helps make semen, which carries sperm from the testicles when a man ejaculates. In the United States, Prostate cancer affects 230,000 men each year with approximately 30,000 fatalities. Dr. David Samadi states that an MRI fusion biopsy is the best method of prostate cancer detection. Today, most patients opt for removal of the prostate by prostate surgery. Dr. David Samadi states that removal of the prostate gives extremely accurate staging. In the hands of an experienced surgeon sexual function & continence will not be effected. A new treatment option available for patients is HIFU. According to Dr. David Samadi HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound) is a treatment option that can be considered for selected low risk prostate cancer patients (Gleason 6) with a small prostate. Patients will be under general anesthesia and a transducer in the rectum is used to generate high focused ultrasound energy to burn the cancer cells. Patients considering HIFU as a treatment option should consider the following. • Stage of prostate cancer (low, moderate or aggressive) • How many cores of the prostate is effected by cancer HIFU should not be offered to patients with advanced cancer as there’s a recurrence rate of 28%. There’s also a risk of infection, urinary problems & other adverse side effects. _________________________________________________________________ Dr. David Samadi is the Chairman of Urology & Robotics Surgery at Lenox Hill Hospital.

High PSA (Prostate Specific Antigen) is NOT a Diagnosis for Prostate Cancer

A lot of men get this test to rule out prostate cancer. PSA or Prostate Specific Antigen is a secretion by the prostate to help thin the semen fluid so sperm can swim freely. The ancient Greek word for sperm is “living bean” and the code for female and male is in the sperm. Richard Ablin PHD is the one who discovered the PSA or Prostate Specific Antigen. He also talks about the side effects of the Radical Prostateconomy. Some Reasons or Cause of High PSA 1. The day before, you went in a long jog. 2. Under Stress 3. Inflammation 4. Enlarged Prostate Gland PSA Blood Value - Risk of Prostate Cancer 1. Low risk: less than 10 2. Immediate Risk: 10-20 3. High Risk: greater than 20 Side Effects of Radical Prostateconomy 1. Incontinent 2. Impotent In this video we are gonna talk about something called PSA Prostate Specific Antigen. A lot of men get this test as they get older to rule out prostate cancer. So what is it? It is a secretion by the prostate, by the way the prostate normally should be the size of a walnut about 1 ounce, to help thin semen fluid so sperm can swim freely. The ancient Greek word for sperm means living been because you have this little cell with a tail that could actually swim like a mino carrying half of the genetic material to connect up with the ovum to fuse and form one body. The code for female and male is in the sperm. So this video is based on a book called The Great Prostate Hoax by Richard Albin PHD – this is the guy in 1970 who actually discovered PSA and he is writing a book about it. It is quite fascinating. So if you do research on PSA, they have certain blood values. You have Low risk: less than 10, Immediate Risk: 10-20 and High Risk: greater than 20. He found that these are arbitrary numbers, they are not based on fact, they are based on opinion because he found that you can have prostate cancer with low numbers and not have cancer with high numbers. There are many reasons for high PSA. Lets say for example the day before you went in a long jog or you are under stress, or you have inflammation, or you have an enlarged prostate gland – all of these could cause high PSA and as you get older, most men developed an enlarged prostate as the normal aging process. In fact he said this, some men died because of prostate cancer and many man that have prostate cancer die from old age with prostate cancer. The thing about prostate cancer is that its very rare for it to spread outside the gland itself.

Erectile Dysfunction from Prostate Cancer Treatment | Prostate Cancer Staging Guide
 
05:32
PCRI’s Executive Director, Mark Scholz, MD, talks about erectile dysfunction that occurs after prostate cancer treatment. He covers the risk of side effects and practical information about how to weigh the risks and benefits of treatment. Don’t know your stage? Take the quiz: Visit http://www.prostatecancerstaging.org To learn more about prostate cancer visit http://www.pcri.org To download the free Staging Guide visit http://www.pcri.org/prostate-cancer-staging 0:26 Each treatment has a different risk of impotence. Focal treatment tends to have the least erectile side effects, radiation having an intermediate risk of side effects, and radical prostatectomy having the highest risk of impotence after treatment 1:03 The onset of erectile dysfunction varies by treatment. Radical prostatectomy causes immediate erectile dysfunction. Men typically recover over a period of time. Radiation on the other hand typically does not have an immediate effect on erectile function, but rather, erectile function after radiation will tend to worsen as time goes on. This distinction is important because the immediate erectile dysfunction after surgery can cause atrophy and scarring of the penis from a lack of use. 2:10 Erectile dysfunction can have serious psychological side effects on men. When erectile dysfunction occurs, men can lose interest in pursuing intercourse, which in turn can worsen the problem. This reality must be taken into consideration as treatment is being selected. Men still have sensation even if the erectile function is reduced. But sexual activity after treatment is different. Additionally, after any form of prostate treatment, men will have dry orgasms, which will also change the sensation of sexual activity. Many men are not informed of this fact. 4:05 Practitioners often cite favorable statistics when trying to convince men to choose one treatment over another. The reality is that most of these statistics have a different definition than one might expect. Most studies that are quoted define impotence as the inability to get an erection even when taking a drug like Viagra, also they define potency as the ability to get a “serviceable erection.” So erectile function and people’s daily lives are affected more than what the quoted statistics might suggest. You may not be told in your consultation that you will have to take Viagra-like drugs and that the quality of your erections will be reduced. 5:50 Age has a notable effect on erectile function after prostate cancer treatment. Men who are younger tend to recover better. But as men get older, they are more likely to experience worse side effects. Also, men with preexisting erectile issues will likely have much worse outcomes depending on the treatment selected.

New prostate cancer treatment- Natural Prostate  Treatment - Natural - Effective- no side effect
 
08:50
For prostate cancer, our treatment consists of several steps. First, we determine the location and size of the prostate cancer lesions by Digital Rectal Examination (DRE), Trans Rectal UltraSound (TRUS), and pelvic Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) examination. And then we targeted inject a set of anti-cancer herbal extracts without any side effects into the prostate cancer lesion area in high concentrations by using 3D targeted injection technology, thus directly inhibiting and killing cancer cells, making the prostate cancerous tissue atrophy and necrotize. At the same time, we targeted inject unblocking herbal extracts without any side effects to resolve the pathogenic tissue and prostatic endotoxin, and discharge toxic substances. In addition, we use some other herbal extracts without any side effects to improve and restore prostate immunity and the blood circulation to prevent the recurrence of prostate cancer. Through 3D Prostate Targeted Treatment, the volume of the prostate cancer lesions will shrink or disappear, and the patient’s symptoms should be improved or disappear. At the first and second clinical stages (I-II stages), prostate cancer lesion is only confined to the prostate capsule. At this time, we inject a set of anti-cancer herbal extracts and unblocking herbal extracts within the prostate cancer lesion for treatment. At the third clinical stage (III stage), prostate cancer lesion goes beyond the prostate capsule and invades neighboring tissues and organs like seminal vesicle, bladder neck etc. We targeted inject treatment medicines within the prostate capsule to treat the primary lesion, and we also apply 3D targeted injection technology to put a set of anti-cancer treatment medications into adjacent seminal vesicle, the bladder neck and other neighboring tissues and organs for treatment. At the fourth clinical stage (IV stage), prostate cancer lesion spreads beyond the prostate by transferring lesions to distant bones, or even lungs, liver and adrenal gland. We targeted inject treatment medicines within the prostate capsule to treat the primary lesion; at the same time, we couple with systemic treatment and local targeted injection treatment of distant metastasis lesions. The treatment medications include anti-cancer herbal extracts, unblocking herbal extracts, and improving immunity herbal extracts. Our clinical use of medicines have no side effects. Because prostate cancer normally happens in older people, the cancer nodules will press on the prostate tubes, ejaculatory ducts and posterior urethra, prostate cancer patients usually may also have prostatitis and genitourinary tract infection, 3D Prostate Targeted Treatment can treat these diseases at the same time. 3D Prostate Targeted Treatment is very suitable for prostate cancer patients who also have prostatitis and benign prostatic hyperplasia. 3D Prostate Targeted Treatment is an non-surgical method that causes no harm, no side-effects with no ongoing consequences of the original disease, to completely treat prostate cancer. 3D Prostate Targeted Treatment is not a long-term medicinal treatment and so it is the best treatment for prostate cancer as it causes no side-effects. At present, 3D Prostate Targeted Treatment is not suitable for distant metastases of prostate cancer, including bone metastases, lung metastases, liver metastases and adrenal glands metastases.

Learn more about our cancer treatments here: http://www.mskcc.org/morescience Like us on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/sloankettering Follow us on Twitter: http://twitter.com/sloan_kettering Widespread screening for prostate cancer means that men are now often diagnosed with the disease before it is detectable by digital-rectal exam. This means that doctors are treating a different, earlier-stage disease than they were 10 years ago, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center specialists say. For this reason the results of all treatment approaches are better in today's patients. {partial transcript} In other words, the studies and the numbers that we’ve seen, the patients themselves have selected which direction they want to go (that may introduce a little bias into the numbers). But we have thousands and thousands of cases that give us an idea. It shows that we’re looking at, generally, a ten to fifteen year survival rate. As we follow this out and I guess part of the difficulty is that prostate cancer is pretty slow growing. So we have to follow these men for a very long period of time before we start seeing a difference between radiation therapy and surgery. It’s hard to make a career in the natural history of prostate cancer because it basically takes your career. You take someone with a localized prostate cancer and you want to see if they are going to die of prostate cancer, you’ll need to follow them for twenty to twenty-five years. We have used intermediate end points and different ways of assessment and have found that just because someone has a recurrence of prostate cancer after a typical radiation, some times surgery… I’m just joking, it’s not a death sentence, and they do not all behave the same way. Their life expectancy is still measured in many years and they may not all behave on as if they’re going to have a rapid course.

Robotic Assisted Laparoscopic Radical Prostatectomy Surgery • PreOp Patient Education Patient Education and Engagement Company 10/17/2015 Your doctor has recommended a procedure, Robot Assisted Laparoscopic Radical Prostatectomy to treat your prostate cancer. Before we talk about the procedure, let’s review some information about the prostate and your medical condition. The prostate is located under the bladder and behind the penis. It is a walnut-sized gland that is part of the male reproductive system. It helps make semen. In fact, if during surgery, the surgeon finds that the cancer has already spread and is outside of the prostate, the procedure is stopped and other more effective treatments for the situation are planned. There are different ways to operate and remove a cancerous prostate. Your surgeon has recommended a laparoscopic procedure. Your surgeon has scheduled your laparoscopic procedure to be Robot Assisted. This means that your surgical team will work with pieces of equipment that together are called the robot. The tower has a video screen for the team and surgeon to see the surgery in high definition. The surgeon sits at a console that makes it easier to see drive and move special tools to do delicate cutting and stitching. The robot has arms that attach to the laparoscope and other tools as needed. A tiny incision is made and your abdomen is filled with CO2 (say “C” “Oh” “2”), carbon dioxide gas. Other small incisions are made as needed for the surgeon to place tools that are used to cut, stitch, move and remove tissue for the procedure. The robot is carefully connected to the laparoscopic instruments. The bladder is gently separated from the prostate, The connection of the prostate to the bladder is cut. And then the connection to the urethra, The surgeon is careful to protect the nerves that control your erection and urination. However, Damage to the nerves may be necessary or unavoidable in removing your prostate. The Prostate is carefully placed in a bag, and removed thru a small incision. This way no cancer cells are spread. Finally the bladder is stitched back to the urethra The surgical area is carefully inspected for bleeding and a surgical drain is placed. The instruments and gas are removed. The incisions are closed. After surgery, “speak-up” and tell someone on your care-team if you have unexpected pain, dizziness or trouble breathing. You will have some discomfort but medication should help if you have pain. Your risk of complication from this surgery is most related to your health before surgery, the size and nature of your cancer and the experience of your surgeon. Prostate cancer typically affects older men with other medical problems. Your team will watch for early rare complications such as stroke, heart attack, blood clot, and internal bleeding. Most patients stay in the hospital for 1-3 nights after surgery. The drain is often removed before you are sent home. The Foley will stay in place for about 1 to 3 weeks.Incontinence, leaking urine is a known side effect of prostatectomy. It is normal to have after your Foley is removed. You will need to wear a pad to stay dry. Control of urine improves quickly over the following days, weeks and months. By 6 months, 20% or 1 in 5 men still have some urine leakage and 5% or 5 in 100 men have severe leakage. Another side effect of this surgery is erectile dysfunction or ED. All men will have trouble with their erections after prostate removal. Half of men, 50% will eventually be able to have an erection but most will continue to have some permanent changes. Time, exercise, medication and surgery can help. Call your doctor if you: cannot urinate, have a fever, redness or pus from your incision, worsening pain or bright red bleeding that doesn’t stop You should be ready to verify or confirm your: list of medical problems and surgeries, All of your medications, including vitamins and supplements current smoking, alcohol and drug use and All allergies, especially to medications, latex and tape but not all surgeons find using the robot helpful in performing laparoscopic surgery. All surgery and anesthesia have a small but possible risk of serious injury, even some problems very rarely leading to death. It is your job to speak up and ask your surgeon if you still have questions about why this surgery is being recommended for you, the risks and alternatives. This video is intended as a tool to help you to better understand the procedure that you are scheduled to have or are considering. It is not intended to replace any discussion, decision making or advice of your surgeon. Patient Engagement and Education Company #prostatectomy #prostatecancer #Incontinence #prostate #urology

Doctors use this tool to determine whether a patient's first treatment should be surgery or radiation, specialists at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center say. {partial transcript} Let’s say we’ve got an elevated PSA – went for a biopsy and now have been diagnosed with prostate cancer. What I think most men and most people in the audience are interested in hearing is what to do next: Do I do surgery or do I choose radiation? Where do I go from here? Let’s talk about some of the pros and cons of surgery. It used to be recommended that surgery was more for younger men and disease confined to the prostate? We certainly reserve surgery for men that have a ten-year life expectancy at least. Men with less than a ten-year life expectancy can be probably treated in other ways that are much less difficult to go through. In the end, surgery is an assault; it basically is an operation that one has to go through. There is a hospital stay. There are catheters. Simply put, there is a lot a person has to go through with an operation, that if a man does not have a reasonable life expectancy, it is probably not worth going through. That’s not always true for individual patients, but most men who have less than a ten-year life expectancy will be treated with some other modality. A ten-year life expectancy of someone is now age 75, so it’s not as though there should be an age cut off, per se…

Learn to compare the results of a new study that shows the effectiveness of the various prostate cancer treatments including robotic prostatectomy, brachytherapy, IMRT, proton radiation, HIFU and others. The Prostate Cancer Results Study Group compared treatment results across 83,565 Patients, 242 Studies, some for as many as 15 years. This video provides an overview of the comparison web page covering treatment results for low risk prostate cancer. Walking though the web page, the viewer learns the intent and meaning of the graph, central to understanding the low risk comparison web page. The video explains the use and interactions of the web page, with step by step instructions leading the viewer through the function and links found on the page. Closed Captions, (CC), enabled for English, Spanish, Japanese, Chinese (Simplified), Chinese (Traditional). See how effective each prostate cancer treatment is at preventing recurrence of cancer in men, and curing their cancer. http://www.pctrf.org Video Development - Dean Dubinsky Video Transcript: Prostate Cancer Treatment Research Foundation Increasing Knowledge - Building Hope The Prostate Cancer Results Study Group has reviewed studies covering 83,565 patients, a total of 242 studies, some for as long as 15 years. Of that group, 30,609 patients, data from 62 studies were identified in the Low Risk Group. This tutorial will cover the Low Risk Comparison chart for Prostate Cancer Treatments. The treatments on this chart are Surgery, External Beam Radiation, Seeds or Brachytherapy, the combined treatment of Brachytherapy and External Beam Radiation, Proton Radiation, High Dose Rate Radiation and High Intensity Focused Ultrasound. Note that High Dose Rate Radiation and High Intensity Focused Ultrasound do not have enough data points to make up an Ellipse, but the data is included for completeness. To understand more about Low Risk Prostate Cancer and the Treatment options, select the Low Risk Commentary. Here you will find a description of the disease and a overview of the options for Low Risk Patients. To view the results of a treatment, select the square next to the treatment name. For example, selecting surgery causes a series of dots and squares to appear on the page, along with an Ellipse. Each dot or square represents a study with a different number of patients. To learn more about a particular study, hover over the dot. If you click on the dot, a link will appear that will take you to an abstract of the study. To see the entire list of referenced articles on this page, click on the Low Risk Article Reference link. Here you will find a link to all the studies, covering the 30,609 patients, used to create the Low Risk Chart. The scale on the left side of the graph is Percent of PSA Progression Free. Measuring PSA Progression Free, as opposed to survival, is a true indicator of the success of the Treatment. A PSA Progression Free of 100% implies that the cancer has not returned, and no follow up treatment was necessary. The bottom of the graph tracks time in years, in this case up to 16 years. The longer a treatment can maintain a PSA Progression Free close to 100%, the more effective the Treatment. The treatment ellipse is mathematically calculated to help you visualize how the patients are doing with the selected treatment. The midpoint of the ellipse shows on average how the patients responded to that treatment. The direction of the ellipse, shows how the patients trended over time. To learn more about the process behind creating the ellipse's, just click on How the Charts Work. If you choose to focus your study on just one treatment, you can de-select the others on the chart. This capability also works within the key. You can change the data presented, by selecting or de-selecting them in the key. In the case of surgery, there are two types of surgery represented by the ellipse, radical prostatectomy and robotic surgery. Using the key, you can focus in on one or both, by viewing just the data points. If you are unfamiliar or would like to understand more about a treatment, click on the treatment name and the Treatment Description page will appear. Here you will find descriptions of all the treatments being compared on the graph. In the upper right hand corner of the chart are the options to Print or Download the current page, reflecting the treatments you have currently selected. With all treatments selected, this graph displays the results representing 30,609 patients from 62 different studies with prostate cancer and their treatment results, some of them for a period of over 15 years.

Bladder Control Problems After Prostate Surgery
 
03:01
Bladder control or urinary incontinence after prostate surgery is very common. Fortunately after a matter of weeks, the majority of patients' issues resolve naturally. Dr. Jerry Blaivas, explains ways to deal with the issue during those weeks and what to do if the symptoms do not subside. Jerry Blaivas, MD: Urinary incontinence, which is not being able to control the urination, is very very common after prostate cancer surgery. Fortunately, in a vast majority of patients, over time that symptom gets better. So the treatment really depends on where the spectrum you fall. Immediately after the surgery, most people cannot control their urination and the best way to manage that for the short-term is to simply wear some kind of absorbent pads that you can get from any drug store. After a matter of weeks or months if it is not getting better, then we need to have a better understanding of what the causes are. Overwhelmingly, the most common cause of incontinence after prostate cancer surgery is what we call sphincteric incontinence. Sphincteric incontinence means that the muscles that were in the wall of the prostate that ordinarily kept the urethra closed, have either been completely or partially removed or damaged. Okay, so if my fist is like the bladder and my thumb was like the urethra and this would be the tip of the penis where the urine comes out, my knuckle is approximately where the prostate would be. When your doctor did the surgery, he cut out the prostate, so he cut out from here to here, and then he sewed it back together. When he made this incision here, he does so based on the prostate where the prostate in the cancer ends. He does not have much control over where he can cut. He must cut out all the prostate or the cancer. This sphincter muscle is in the wall. This sphincter muscle is supposed to keep the urethra closed so no urine can leak out and sometimes usually when they cut out the prostate, they cut out part of sphincter with it. The remaining part of the sphincter is what would ordinarily keep you continent, keep you from leakage. If too much was cut out then you may never regain continence. If part of it was cut out then you probably will regain continence over time and fortunately, the vast majority of patients do regain continence over time.

When its not Cancer: The Enlarged Prostate
 
02:05
While much concern is directed at the prostate, most of it focuses on cancer, but many times the enlarged prostate gland has a far less sinister explanation. "We're talking benign prostatic hyperplasia. Essentially as men age, the prostate, which is the gland that sits underneath your bladder and surrounds the urethra, enlarges. Forty-percent of 40 year old men have enlarged prostate, 50% of 50 year old men have enlarged prostate and 60% of 60 year old men have enlarged prostate," says Dr. Meir Daller, a urologist on the medical staff of Lee Memorial Health System. At age 20 the prostate gland is about the size of a walnut. By the time a man is 40 it may have grown to the size of an apricot. By 60 it could be as big as a lemon. The growth has implications even when it's not cancerous. Not considered life threatening, benign prostatic hyperplasia or BPH can greatly impact quality of life. The enlarged prostate constricts the urethra, which affects the ability to urinate. Symptoms usually start after age 50. "Waking up at night several times, two or three times at night. You have difficulty falling asleep again, you have dribbling, you have a weaker stream, and you have a hesitancy," says Dr. Daller. The condition is not linked to cancer and doesn't increase the risk of cancer. At its worst, it can lead to a weak bladder, kidney infections and kidney failure. The condition is treatable by first managing activities, including limiting beverages at night, especially those with alcohol and caffeine. A doctor may also recommend drug therapies to relax or shrink the prostate and finally surgery if the symptoms become too severe. A new procedure called the plasma button dissolves excess tissue without the pains of traditional surgery. "In this new procedure, you're using a special gas that essentially vaporizes the insides of the prostate and the end result is the same. The advantage is the faster surgery and the fact that it's bloodless," says Dr. Daller. With an aging population, the enlarged prostate will most likely be a growing problem.
