Prostate Cancer Surgery
Prostate Cancer Surgery
Prostate cancer is a shared cancer affecting many men around the world. This kind of cancer grows in the prostate, a gland in the male generative system. The cancer cells may feast from the prostate to other parts of the body, particularly the bones and lymph bulges. Prostate cancer can cause pain, trouble in urinating, problems during sexual contact or erectile dysfunction. The prostate contains of many cell types, but about all prostate cancers grow in the glandular cells.
In the more outdated approach to doing a Radical Prostatectomy, the surgeon operates through a solitary long incision to remove the prostate and nearby tissues. The surgeon makes a skin slit in your lower abdomen, from the belly button down to the pelvic bone. If the cancer may have feast to the lymph nodes, then the lymph nodes are removed from about the prostate and in case the nodes have cancer cells, it means it is unlikely that the cancer can be cured with surgery. In Fundamental Perineal Prostatectomy, the surgeon makes the opening in the skin between the anus and scrotum (the perineum). This method is used less often because the nerves cannot easily be spared and lymph bulges can't be removed. Laparoscopic methods to radical prostatectomy use several smaller incisions and special surgical tools to eliminate the prostate. This can be complete with the surgeon either holding the tools straight or using a control panel to precisely move robotic arms that hold the tools.
