Prostate cancer is a malignant tumor which develops from the vascular walls’ epithelium of the prostate. This is a common disease among the men of 70 years. Sometimes it appears even earlier – at the age of 50. Statistics shows that operations on prostate cancer removal are successful in 90% of the cases at the 1st and 2nd stages.

The cost and efficiency of prostate oncology treatment depend on the stage of the tumor, its size, the presence of metastases etc. At the 1st stage prostate cancer is almost asymptomatic. However, the physicians can easily diagnose it after carrying out a PSA test and biopsy.

Cost of prostate cancer treatment

The price of the treatment depends on such factors:

  • Stage of the disease and biopsy results;
  • List of surveys necessary for the accurate diagnosis and detection of the most successful therapeutic strategy;
  • Comorbidities and patient’s general condition;
  • Price policy of the chosen clinic;
  • If you are looking for the most efficient type of prostate cancer diagnostics and treatment abroad, the doctor-coordinator from Bookimed can help with a choice of the clinic taking into account all your preferences and medical indications.

Where is it better to treat prostate cancer?

Our patients often answer this question. We should admit that there is no definite answer to it. Nowadays there are some clinics considered the undisputed leaders in prostate cancer treatment. But this status depends rather on the operating doctors than on the medical canters themselves.

“The 90% of success of prostate cancer operational treatment depend on the operating surgeon’s professionalism. Today most of the operations are performed using the robotic system da Vinci. In order to be considered experienced in working with it, the surgeon must conduct at least 500 surgeries. We send our patients to the doctors who conducted nearly 4,000 operations! This is a great experience and credible confirmation of the surgeon’s skills.”
