Early Detection Increases The Success Of Treatment

One out of every seven men in the world are at risk of developing prostate cancer during their lifetime. Medicana Bahçelievler Hospital Urologist Prof. Dr. Semih Ayan gave information about the treatment of prostate cancer.

He said that the success of the treatment of prostate cancer in early stage is close to 100%. “Radical prostatectomy operation which is done before the cancer spread to other organs in the early stages is the most effective method in the treatment. However radiotherapy that is done by giving radiation to prostate is effective in early stage prostate cancer. For prostate cancer in advanced stages, should be given drugs to stop the production of testosterone and the hormone treatment. With hormone treatment the disease will be repressed until two years. If patient become resistant to the hormone we prefer chemotherapy.”
