Benefits of Radiation Therapy for Prostate Cancer
Radiation therapy is a proven treatment option with a low risk of complications
Understanding Prostate Cancer
1 in 8 American men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime
Other than skin cancer, prostate cancer is the most common cancer in American men. According to the American Cancer Society, about one man in eight will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime.
In many cases, prostate cancer is a slow-growing cancer that does not spread beyond the prostate gland before the time of diagnosis. However, some cases are more aggressive and need more urgent treatment. Prostate cancer that is detected early, when it is still confined to the prostate gland, has the best chance for successful treatment.
Safe, Effective, and Personalized
Effectively shrink or eliminate prostate cancer tumors with minimal side effects
Radiation therapy for prostate cancer is an outpatient procedure, which means that patients do not need to be hospitalized or undergo general anesthesia. This is a major benefit of radiation therapy as it allows patients to continue with their daily activities during the course of treatment. Furthermore, there is no need for recovery time after each session, which means that patients can return to work or other activities immediately
Radiation therapy is a noninvasive treatment option for prostate cancer, meaning that there are no incisions or surgical cuts required. This eliminates the risk of infection or other complications associated with surgery and also means that patients will not have visible scars. Additionally, noninvasive treatment options like radiation therapy are associated with less pain and a faster recovery time than invasive procedures
Radiation therapy for prostate cancer is typically a pain-free treatment option. Patients may experience some mild discomfort or skin irritation during the course of treatment, but these side effects are generally minor and can be easily managed with over-the-counter pain relievers. Furthermore, since radiation therapy is noninvasive and does not require incisions, patients will not experience the pain associated with surgical procedures
