During this month the cancer team at CyberKnife Miami is focusing heavily on prostate cancer awareness.
We’re encouraging men to be proactive and get screened for the disease, because it’s a lifesaver.
Early onset of prostate cancer often times is asymptomatic. Meaning you have no signs or symptoms of the disease.
The only way to detect prostate cancer early, when it’s most curable and easily treated, is through prostate cancer screenings. Such as a PSA test.
Based on factors including your age, family history, genetics and demographics, screenings may be recommended at a younger age and more frequently.
If you have a family history of prostate cancer it’s even more important to get screened and screened earlier in life.
If you have been diagnosed with prostate cancer, it’s also incredibly important to do your research, look at all your treatment options, not just what your doctor may recommend, because there may or may not be a better prostate cancer treatment plan for you.
One of the most technologically advanced treatment options is CyberKnife Radiosurgery, offered at the CyberKnife Center of Miami.
It’s also one of the most effective, safest, and fastest way to get treated, causing the least disruption to your life because it requires only five radiation treatment sessions, each lasting less than an hour.
Other types of radiation require 32-to-42 treatment sessions, and surgery of course requires a lot of healing and downtime, which CyberKnife therapy does not.
CyberKnife is a non-surgical, non-invasive cancer treatment. Its ability to deliver radiation with sub-millimeter accuracy to tumors, also spares damage to vital organs within close proximity, so there’s much less risk of side effects like incontinence and impotence.
The CyberKnife beams even adjust as the tumor or patient moves and breathes normally, keeping the radiation focused only on its target.
Plus decades of research shows CyberKnife has a 97% cure rate for prostate cancer caught early.
