-treatment-prostate-cancerThe prostate is a walnut-sized gland located between the bladder and the penis. It is an exocrine gland of the male reproductive system.There are thousands of tiny glands in the prostate together they produce a fluid that forms part of the semen. The prostate secretes fluid that nourishes and protects sperm.

Prostate cancer is one of the most common types of cancer which effects older men.The prostate cancer starts in the prostate gland cells this is called adenocarcinoma.

Prostate cancer grows slowly and initially remains constrained to the prostate gland, where it may or may not cause serious harm. Prostate cancer is mostly a very slow progressing disease. In the early stages the prostate cancer is constrained to the prostate gland and if not detected early it becomes aggressive and can spread quickly to lymph nodes, in other parts of the body or bones. It can also spread to other organs.

Symptoms of Enlarged Prostate may include:

  • Frequent urination eight or more times a day.
  • Low Back Pain.
  • Trouble in starting a urine stream.
  • A weak or an interrupted urine stream.
  • Frequent urination during night.
  • Urinary incontinence.
  • Pain after ejaculation or during urination.
  • Urine that has an unusual color or smell.

How is Prostate Cancer Diagnosed?

  1. PSA Testing: The epithelial cells in the prostate gland produce a protein called PSA (prostate-specific antigen). We can measure PSA levels in a man’s blood with a help of PSA test. Prostate cancer can increase the production of PSA. After the test if PSA level is found to be high, it might be an indication of either prostate cancer or some kind of prostate situation.

  3. Digital Rectal Examination (DRE): During Digital Rectal Exam, doctor examines the prostate gland, which is adjacent to the rectum. Prostate cancer can make the prostate gland hard and bumpy. DRE helps to detect any structural changes in the prostate gland.
  4. Biopsy:The most commonly used test is a transrectal ultrasound-guided biopsy (TRUS). During a TRUS biopsy, an ultrasound machine is used to build a picture of the inside of the body. The machine is inserted into the rectum. It is more reliable than a PSA test. It can miss up to one in five cancers, because the location of the cancer is unknown when it is carried out. The samples of tissue from the biopsy are studied in a laboratory to see if cancerous cells are present or not.
  5. Bone Scan: Bone scan tells if the cancer has spread to the bones or not. The doctor injects small amount of radiation dye into the veins which accumulates in bones that have been damaged by cancer.
  6. MRI or CT Scan : A magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or computerised tomography (CT) scan is also used to detect the location of the cancer. These scans build a detailed picture of the inside of the body.

    Advanced Treatment Options for Enlarged Prostate & Prostate Cancer:

Laser Surgery for Enlarged Prostate

Green Light Laser PVP :Green Light Laser PVP (Photoselective Vaporization of the Prostate) is minimally invasive technique in the treatment of the enlarged prostate. It uses high-powered laser light combined with fiber optics to vaporize the overgrowth of prostate cells.
In this procedure the surgeon directs the laser at the prostate; the intense pulses of light emitted from the fiber are absorbed by the blood. Within moments, the temperature of the blood becomes so fine it causes the nearby cells to vaporize.
There is growing interest in this procedure by patients and as well as by the surgeons because of its simplicity and effectiveness. A temporary catheter is often inserted to allow urine to drain from the bladder. The procedure takes near about one hour.

The benefits of Laser Technique are really unmatched:

  • No Cut so Less Pain
  • No Bleeding.
  • There is no need of blood transfusion.
  • Early return to normal activity and work.
  • Patient is able to urinate better with a good stream.
  • Complications occur less frequently and are mild if they do.

Surgical Treatment for Enlarged Prostate

1. Radical Prostatectomy :

In radical prostatectomy the surgeon removes all of the prostate gland and some of the tissue around it. It is done to treat prostate cancer. The techniques of radical prostatectomy surgery includes:

  • Retropubic Technique: When the incision is made in the lower belly, it is called the Retropubic approach.
  • Perineal Technique: When the incision is made in the perineum (between the anus and the scrotum) it is called the Perineal approach.

2. Laparoscopic Prostatectomy :

prostate-cancer-treatmentThe prostate can be removed using keyhole (laparoscopic) surgery. The surgeon uses a thin tube with a video camera (laparoscope) inside the cuts which allows the surgeon to see inside the belly during the procedure. The video camera gives a magnified view of the prostate gland on a video screen. The surgeon cuts away the prostate gland from the surrounding tissues. The major difference with this surgery is that the surgeon makes several small cuts instead of one big cut.

3. Robotic Prostatectomy :

prostate-cancer-treatment The world’s most advanced robotic prostatectomy surgery available is the da Vinci Surgical System. Robotic prostatectomy is becoming more popular as it is less painful and minimally invasive prostate cancer treatment. The da Vinci robotic prostatectomy enables surgeons to overcome many limitations of both open prostatectomy and laparoscopic prostatectomy.

The da Vinci surgical console consists of high-resolution cameras and micro-surgical instruments that enable the surgeon to perform robotic prostatectomy by controlling the device powered by robotic technology. During robotic prostate surgery the da Vinci robot provides the surgeon with improved visualization and precision compared with open or laparoscopic surgery. This allows the surgeons to perform fine computer-controlled movements and a more precise and minimally invasive robotic prostatectomy. It achieves the same or better prostate cancer treatment results than a surgeon’s own hands in open or laparoscopic surgery.

Advantages of Laparoscopic and Robotic Surgery for Prostate Cancer:

  1. Less Scaring: its minimally invasive. Instead of having a 5 or 6” incision to the skin and abdominal fascia, patients have a series of small “band-aid” incisions.
  2. A Shorter Hospital Stay: With smaller incisions, the postoperative pain is significantly less, which means your length of hospitalization is shorter.
  3. Less Drugs, Minimal Blood Loss:
    Patients’ need for postoperative pain medicine and narcotics is also greatly reduced after the laparoscopic/robotic approach compared to open surgery. During Robotic or laparoscopic prostatectomy, blood loss is very minimal and has a negligible risk of needing a transfusion.
  4. Reduced risk of Erectile Function: Robotic prostatectomy’s ability to preserve the erectile nerves. During an open prostatectomy through an incision on the anterior abdominal wall, the nerves that provide erection are hidden behind the prostate. The approach taken using the surgical robot, enters the abdomen and the robotic arms are positioned posterior to the prostate with the nerves directly in front of the robotic/laparoscopic camera. In this way, the nerves maybe preserved, primarily because the anatomy can be seen more clearly compared to open surgery.

What People say about us

“I went to the Internet and found this website website amongst several others. I sent e-mails of with my specific problem outlined to three sites. Now just 2 weeks later, I am glad that I made a quick decision and I am feeling much better and walking unassisted and ready to return home. I attribute this to the world class technology here in India and the skill of the surgeon and staff who have worked so hard to get me back on the feet. The staff at the hospital are all smiles and very helpful. I enjoyed all my meals during my stay. I would recommend anyone who needs a Prostate Surgery to go for the Robotic option, its a bit expensive but the pay offs are superb – less pain, quick recovery and no fear of complications.”

I then went to the Internet and found IndiaCarez.com website amongst several several others. I sent e-mails off with my specific problem outlined to three sites.

IndiaCarez.com helped me immensely to apply for India visa and make arrangements to fly to India and have the procedure done.

Now just 2 weeks later, I am glad that I made a quick decision and I am feeling much better and walking unassisted and ready to return home. I attribute this to the world class technology here in India and the skill of the surgeon and staff who have worked so hard to get me back on the feet.
