The effects of prostate cancer range from the early symptoms you may experience, through to the diagnostic and treatment approaches which can all affect your physical, emotional and mental health.
Early symptoms of prostate cancer may include trouble passing urine, going to the toilet more frequently or having to get up in the middle of the night for the toilet.
As prostate cancer advances, symptoms can become more pronounced. At an advanced stage, there may be blood in the urine, or men may experience weight loss and swelling of the legs. It is vital that men visit their GP as soon as possible to get tested for prostate cancer, as the earlier it is caught, the easier it is to treat while minimising negative effects to one’s physical, emotional and mental health.
The Prostate Experts advocate a minimally invasive approach to diagnostics and treatment when and where possible. The use of MRI to initially detect cancer and, where needed, to further investigate areas of suspected cancer, will ensure you undergo minimal side-effects.
Through an early diagnosis using precision technology, The Prostate Experts will be able to offer men with prostate cancer the very latest forms of cancer care, ranging from focal therapy for localised forms of cancer to nerve-sparing robotic surgery. Thanks to these modern treatments and diagnostics, men with prostate cancer now have a far smaller risk of life altering side effects from prostate cancer.
