    Which is the best treatment for prostate cancer?

    Surgical treatment
    It involves the removal of the prostate gland and some of the surrounding tissue with a few lymph nodes. This is known as radical prostatectomy and can be performed in the following ways:

    Robotic-assisted surgery

    The instruments are attached to a mechanical device and inserted into the abdomen through small incisions. The surgeon uses the robot to move the instruments. Due to the use of robotic technology, it is a minimally-invasive technique. However, it brings along with it, the risk of urinary incontinence and erectile dysfunction.

    An incision in the abdomen

    The prostate gland is removed out by making an incision in the lower abdomen. This is known as retropubic surgery.
    Radiotherapy

    This process involves the use of high power energy to destroy cancerous cells. Radiation therapy can be delivered in two ways:

    External beam radiation:

    The patient lies on the table, while the machine moves around the body, radiating the high power energy beams. For example, x-rays or proton beams are frequently used to treat prostate cancer. This form of treatment continues for 5 days a week for several weeks.

    Brachytherapy:

    The process involving the placement of radioactive seeds in the prostate tissue. These seeds are of a size of rice grain and deliver a low dose of radiation over a long period of time. With the help of a needle, guided by ultrasound images, the surgeon inserts these radioactive seeds. These seeds stop radiating the beams by themselves and do not need to be removed.

    The side effects may include pain and frequent urination. The rectal symptoms may also be there including loose stools or pain while passing stools. Erectile dysfunction is another side effect.

    Hormone Therapy

    Normally, the hormones are produced naturally in the body and control the growth and activity of the normal cells. Prostate cancer depends upon the male hormone testosterone to grow. The reduction in his hormone in the body can reduce the risk of prostate cancer relapse.
