To treat prostate cancer stage 1, prostatectomy is used (complete or partial removal of the prostate), as well as brachytherapy (type of radiotherapy).
Prostatectomy is carried out with Da Vinci robot. The surgery allows a patient to maintain erectile function and normal urination for 80% of patients.
An organ-preserving method of prostate cancer treatment is brachytherapy. The doctor uses radio emission on the tumor region: it has a direct effect on cancer cells, without affecting healthy tissues.
One session of brachytherapy lasts 20 minutes. In a day, as a rule, 1 or 2 sessions are appointed. The course of treatment takes 1-2 weeks.
For prostate cancer diagnostics, transrectal examination, biopsy, MRI and series of blood tests are performed at stage 1. Low-traumatic methods for prostate gland biopsy are used .
The examination helps to determine the size of the tumor and its location.
The procedures takes 2-3 days.
