What are the Best Prostate Cancer Treatments?

Several prostate cancer treatments are available today. These range from active surveillance and watchful waiting to surgery for prostate cancer. You may also consider therapy, such as radiation therapy, hormone therapy, chemotherapy, or ultrasound therapy. Each of these therapies offers unique treatment possibilities, as well as side effects. The best way to choose a particular type of prostate cancer treatment is to discuss your options with Dr. Guleria.

Is High Intensity Focused Ultrasound Beneficial for Treating Cancer of the Prostate?

If you have been diagnosed with localized, low-risk prostate cancer, you may benefit from HIFU. High intensity focused ultrasound has been used around the world for more than 15 years in the treatment of prostate cancer. The technology uses a robotically controlled probing device to deliver ultrasound energy to the area of the prostate in which cancer cells are located. It is considered an excellent alternative to radical surgery or radiation for prostate cancer patients who want less erectile dysfunction. HIFU treatment is also noted as being pain-free and less likely to cause urinary incontinence for patients.

How is Brachytherapy Useful for Prostate Cancer Treatment?

Brachytherapy is a form of prostate cancer treatment that involves the insertion of radioactive implants into the prostate. These implants, also known as seeds, send a high dose of radiation to the tumors. This ensures that the rest of the body is exposed to less radiation than with traditional cancer treatments using external radiation. Also referred to as internal radiation, the higher dose of radiation to the cancerous growths treats the cancer more quickly. You benefit from a shorter treatment time, as well as fewer side effects due to the radiation therapy.
