Dr. David Samadi’s Take on Surgery Versus Radiation Therapy to Treat Localised Prostate Cancer

Being diagnosed with prostate cancer is a traumatizing experience. Prostate cancer is a common cancer, ranking second to skin cancer regarding prevalence in American men. The American Cancer Society forecasts that 164,690 American men will receive the shocking news in the year that they have prostate cancer. Out of those who will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2018, about 29 thousand of them will succumb to prostate cancer.

Researchers have established that over 90 percent of prostate cancer patients are diagnosed with localized cancer, affecting only the prostate gland. Such patients have to choose between radiotherapy and surgery treatment regimens. Surgery, however, is proving to be a more effective prostate cancer treatment method if the recent study by Canadian researchers is anything to go by. The study titled “Surgery Versus Radiotherapy for Clinically-localized Prostate Cancer: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis,” was concluded on the note that indeed surgery is more superior to radiation therapy at treating localized prostate gland.

Dr. David Samadi, a Lenox Hill Hospital-based urologist, agrees with the Canadian study, adding that radiation therapy fosters the development of secondary cancers. Rectal and bladder cancers arise primarily because of mutations at cellular level nurtured by radiation therapy sessions. Dr. David Samadi uses the cases of Mitt Romney, Colin Powell, and John Kerry, who were diagnosed with prostate cancers and each chose surgical prostate removal procedures. They are presently in good health, prostate cancer free. In fact, rumors are rife that Romney is considering running for the U.S Senate seat in Utah when Orrin Hatch retires.

However, even with studies heaping praises on the effectiveness of surgery as a prostate cancer treatment regimen, Dr. David Samadi warns a lot could go wrong if surgical procedures are not administered correctly. Some of the leading complications include loss of urinary continence and altered sexual functionality.

Established in 1991 Life Line Screening specializes in community-based health care screenings for adults. Serving both the U.S. and the U.K. Life Line Screening performed screenings on 8,000,000 people world wide. The company stages 16,000 screening events annually. Their commitment to their patients earned Life Line Screening an A plus rating from the Better Business Bureau.

Using the most modern medical imaging technology and blood work Life Line Screening’s team of highly qualified techs and board certified physicians can identify risk factors for over 20 serious illnesses. The benefit to patients is having the knowledge they need to possibly keep a potential illness from becoming an actual illness.

Life Line Screening’s commitment to better health extends into research. Over a five year period, they gathered information from 3.1 million medical and lifestyle surveys and ultrasound images that revealed a risk of Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm(AAA). AAA is an enlargement of the lower part of the aorta. AAA is usually symptomless. If an aneurysm expands one may experience feeling of pulsation near the navel, deep and unabating pain in the abdomen side of the abdomen or the back. Should an aneurysm rupture it will cause a potentially fatal internal bleed.

The object of the study was to gain a better understanding of the risk factors for Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms. It was learned that the number of years a person smokes and the number of cigarettes they smoke increased the risk for AAA. The further overweight an individual is the chances of developing an Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm increases exponentially. Weight loss diminishes the risk of AAA. Another bit of knowledge gained was that a diet rich in fruits vegetables and nuts lowers  chances of developing an Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm.

Researchers found that cardiovascular diseases like AAA can occur ten years earlier in males than in females to learn more: click here.

This research led to a better method of detecting Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms. The new testing method made it possible to screen a larger segment of the at risk population. The new testing method doubled the number of Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms that were detected.
