Tampa, FL, November 06, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Prostate cancer is the second most common type of cancer found in men, and one in six men will develop prostate cancer during their lifetime. In response and dedicated to their mission, Dattoli Prostate Cancer Treatment Center has published a comprehensive prostate cancer treatment facts document comparing 17 mainstream prostate cancer treatment options for men diagnosed with prostate cancer.
The alphabetical listing of prostate cancer treatment options includes prostate cancer treatments from Cryotherapy to Watchful Waiting. The prostate cancer comparison also includes a brief description, pros, cons and information on published success rates of the most common prostate cancer treatment options available throughout the US. “This is the tool that newly diagnosed men have been searching for,” says Michael Dattoli, MD, founder and physician in chief of the world-renowned Dattoli Cancer Center.
Over 200,000 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer disease annually, actually more than the number of women diagnosed annually with breast cancer. In the past 5 years there has been an explosion in new prostate cancer treatment options – including robotics for surgery and novel radiation applications.
“The challenge remains how to kill the prostate cancer cells without permanently damaging the critical structures which surround the walnut-sized gland,” Dattoli adds. Depending on the stage of the disease when diagnosed with prostate cancer and the experience level of the treating physician, treatment has too often left the man impotent and/or incontinent. Newer prostate cancer treatment therapies are designed to protect these functions while destroying the malignant prostate cancer cells, but many have not yet proven their effectiveness.
