A minimally invasive treatment for prostate cancer
Today, medical advances allow to identify the management of prostate cancer. Treatment options go from active surveillance (delaying treatment) to radical surgery (removing the prostate and lymph).
Both focal and radical treatments are available in the management of prostate cancer. When the tumour in the prostate is extensive or aggressive, focal treatment (where only the diseased part of the tissue is treated and the healthy tissue is preserved) is no longer an option and the entire prostate needs to be removed.
Your doctor will inform you of the different treatments available. It is important to investigate all options and talk with your family about the different possibilities to make sure that you select the most appropriate for you and your lifestyle.
