The treatment plan for prostate cancer depends on the size, location, extent of the disease, and the patient’s physical condition. In St. Stamford Modern Cancer Hospital Guangzhou, experts from Multidisiplinary Team (MDT) will jointly hold a consultation and discuss appropriate treatment options for prostate cancer patients to prevent them from suffering surgery and side effects of radiotherapy and chemotherapy and extend survival time.
Surgical Resection: Big trauma and high risk; only suitable for early stage prostate cancer, cause serious damage to adjacent tissues and intestine; complications such as urinary incontinence and impotence, may even lead to infertility,
Radiation and Chemotherapy Kills：Unbearable toxic side effects, such as hair losing, vomiting and hypoimmunity etc. Chemoradiotherapy fails to achieve good efficacy for patient with advanced prostate cancer with high chance of recurrence.
Minimally Invasive Therapy: 2-3mm incision, few side effects, little pain
Interventional therapy: with a 1-2 millimeter incision, anti-cancer drugs are directly given to the tumor, causing fewer side effects and drug concentration is 2-8 times higher than systemic chemotherapy, killing cancer cells more accurately.
Cryotherapy: compared with surgery, cryotherapy is associated with lower risks and less complications. little bleeding and quick recovery; few damage to normal tissues and can be performed repeatedly to prevent recurrence of lung cancer.
Particle Implantation: Implanted particles will keep emitting y-ray within the tumor, targeting to the cancer cells accurately; the radiation of seeds to tumor last for 180 days, high accuracy, millimeter minimally invasive; few toxic side effects and complications.
Nanoknife: High voltage pulses released from electrode probes, resulting in multiple permanent nano-meters Irreversible Electroporation, breaking through cancer cells, accurately destroys cancer cells, protects blood vessels and nerves around the lesion, enhances the body's immune mechanism, rapidly metabolizes dead cancer cells and prevents recurrence.
TCM & Western Medicine: Combination of traditional Chinese medicine and minimally invasive techniques can not only kill the cancer cells effectively, but also reduce toxic side effects, lower the rate of cancer recurrence, and greatly improve survival rate.
Tips from oncologists at St. Stamford Modern Cancer Hospital Guangzhou: Treatment for prostate cancer are various, but only by treating it according to patient’s individualized conditions, so that prostate cancer can be effectively treated and controlled.
