Prostate Cancer Breakthroughs
Prostate cancer care is today undergoing a quiet revolution with new tests and treatments, yet doctors continue to steer most men with prostate cancer to radical surgery or radiation with their damaging adverse effects, treatments that most men with prostate cancer do not need. In the past and for the most part still today, men with an elevated PSA test and a biopsy positive for cancer are referred directly for surgery or radiation. It is now known that this approach is often excessive, unnecessary, and can cause severe, life-long side effects in the majority of men who only need careful surveillance or focal therapy. Today, it is known that only about 15% of men diagnosed with prostate cancer have aggressive, life-threatening disease, yet as many as 85% of them are referred for radical treatment.
Dr. Cohen says there are revolutionary new tests and treatments that patients don't know about. He was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2011 and directed toward surgery or radiation, but after learning about the leading-edge tests and conducting dozens of interviews with top doctors, he avoided invasive treatment and his prostate cancer remains under excellent control without drugs.
