Treatment methods for early and advanced prostate cancer

Abstract

Prostate cancer is treated in a number of different ways, depending on a host of different factors, ranging from the severity of the cancer, the health of the patient, their age, and their own personal choice of treatment. Whether the choice is open or laparoscopic surgery, laser treatment or cryoablation, ultimately, the options open to the urologic surgeon today are modelled and defined specific to the patient’s individual needs. Treatment Methods for Early and Advanced Prostate Cancer focusses on the “how to treat” scenario faced by urologic surgeons treating all stages of prostate cancer by examining all the methods used to treat the condition. Specifically targeting the fully qualified urologic surgeon, but also highly useful for residents and trainee surgeons wishing to learn and improve their treatment techniques, Treatment Methods for Early and Advanced Prostate Cancer is undoubtedly an extremely popular tool indeed.
