Prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in men in Poland and the second leading cause of death among men due to cancer. Moreover, in the last decade, prostate cancer is characterized by the greatest dynamics of the increase in morbidity. What is the diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer in Poland?
Prostate cancer is the first most commonly diagnosed malignant cancer in men in Poland. It is estimated that 1.1 million men in the world fall on it every year. In Poland, this disease affects more than 16 thousand. people per year and accounts for almost 20 percent. among cancers detected in men. The risk of developing prostate cancer increases with age. The average age of diagnosis is 69 years.
Using the micro-ultrasound system
Prostate cancer is often diffuse and may therefore be missed in a standard ultrasound examination. Using the micro-ultrasound system, the urologist can see more details invisible in the classical examination, more accurately assessing the individual structures and architecture of the prostate tissue.
This is because it has a revolutionary, previously unattainable image resolution of 29 MHz, compared to 9 MHz in traditional devices. This high quality is comparable to magnetic resonance imaging and provides a three-fold improvement compared to standard ultrasound. – This translates into the effectiveness of cancer detection and treatment, as it allows the doctor to achieve an accuracy of 70 microns.
Micro-ultrasound diagnosis is intended for patients with suspected prostate cancer, especially those who, for health reasons, cannot have a magnetic resonance imaging. It is also used as a complement to fusion biopsy-a highly specialized diagnostic, which is a fusion of ultrasound images with magnetic resonance imaging.
Echo-laser is another breakthrough technology for the treatment of prostate cancer. During the procedure, thin optical fibers are inserted through the skin of the perineum into the prostate, which destroy the tumor cell in a non-invasive manner through laser thermoablation. The use of micro-ultrasound technology for this procedure allows you to accurately reach the foci of cancer and destroy them.
The procedure is minimally invasive
The use of an echo laser in the treatment of prostate cancer significantly reduces the risk of the consequences of radical treatment. – The procedure is minimally invasive, lasts only 20-30 minutes, and the patient usually goes home on the same day. The procedure can be performed under local anesthesia and in patients taking anticoagulants.
Diseases of the prostate-inflammation and cancer of the prostate gland. Check how to prevent prostate disease and when to go to the urologist?
The prostate is a prostate gland located just below the bladder. He’s usually in his 50s. one year old. The most common disease associated with this gland is prostatitis. How to recognize prostate diseases and when should I go to a urologist?
What is prostatitis? Prostatitis can occur in men of any age, although most often it affects people after 50. one year old. Prostatitis is one of the most common male diseases. The ailment can take the form of acute or chronic, which differ from each other in symptoms and course. In the chronic form of the disease can develop from a few months to even a few years. In contrast, acute prostatitis is characterized by a very rapid course.
