There are many treatments for prostate cancer, which can make it difficult to choose the right treatment for you. What works for you will depend on the severity of your cancer, your health history, and what methods you have already tried to prevent cancer from spreading.
Open radical prostatectomy, a prostate cancer treatment, removes the prostate gland from the body in a surgical procedure. First, an incision is made to allow the surgeon to work inside the body. Next, the surgeon removes the prostate and nearby tissues and fat, and the tubes that distribute semen in the body will be disconnected. By removing the infected tissues, your body can function without the prostate cancer that is putting your health at-risk and your future in jeopardy.
As mentioned above, open radical prostatectomy is capable of removing prostate cancer from your body. This procedure can work for you if your cancer is limited to the prostate. Open radical prostatectomy is recommended for men who are otherwise in good health and under the age of 75.
If your cancer has spread beyond the prostate, an open radical prostatectomy may only remove a portion of the cancer, and it would be one part of a more comprehensive cancer treatment plan. Learn more by scheduling an appointment immediately with Urology One in Canton, Ohio.
