Depending on the case, prostate cancer may be safely followed with active surveillance or watchful waiting rather than surgery, chemotherapy or radiation. Ask your local urologist for more information on Contino®, an alternative to diapers or surgery. Patients may be referred to a urologist if their physician suspects they may need treatment for a condition relating to bladder, urethra, ureters, kidneys, and adrenal glands.
Urethral inserts like Contino® are temporarily inserted into the urethra (the tube which carries urine to the outside of the body) to prevent or reduce bladder leakage. Depending on the case, prostate cancer may be safely followed with active surveillance or watchful waiting rather than surgery, chemotherapy or radiation. Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in Canadian men. It is most common in older men
Colorectal ; Other Cancers: Dietary fibre and antioxidant intake are two of the biggest considerations
when it comes to reducing the risk of preventable cancers, such as colorectal cancer. Beets and beet
greens are among the most abundant sources of both these important nutrients.
Your body will digest and absorb short-chain carbohydrates (also called rapid-acting carbohydrates) more quickly, which can actually cause a spike in the blood sugar. Some examples would be juice, white bread and sugar. Longer-chain carbohydrates take the body longer to digest and absorb, causing less of an effect on the blood sugar. Examples are legumes, oats, barley and berries. These carbohydrates can play a very important role in diabetes management.
Surgery for prostate cancer is called a radical prostatectomy and involves the removal of the prostate gland with or without some lymph nodes in the pelvis. This can be performed with key-hole surgery called laparoscopy (usually done with a robot to help the surgeon) or through a small incision in the lower part of the abdomen called open surgery.
Once prostate cancer is diagnosed, one of the first things doctors do is determine how aggressive cancers are (also known as tumor grade) and how much of the prostate is involved and if the cancer has spread outside of the gland to nearby tissues or other parts of the body (otherwise known as tumor stage). This information is important to help determine the treatment options for men newly diagnosed with prostate cancer. What is tumor Grade?:
When a tumor is discovered on prostate biopsy, the aggressiveness of the cancer can be classified into a category called tumor grade. In general, the higher the grade, the more aggressive cancers are. In prostate cancer, the grade is most commonly described as a Gleason Score. The Gleason Score of a prostate cancer is between 2-10. Scores 6 or less are considered mildly aggressive, 7 is considered intermediate aggressive, and scores 8-10 are considered very aggressive. In summary, the higher the Gleason Score, the more aggressive the cancer is, and the greater the risk of cancer spreading outside of the prostate gland. What is tumor Stage?: Often seeing a local urologist in Toronto can help.
