Emerging Technologies Increasing Prostate Cancer Survival

Thanks to advances in medicine and technology, a prostate cancer treatment is no longer as daunting as it once was. Patients can look forward to alternative healing therapies that provide a more natural and holistic cancer treatment approach, or advanced non-invasive procedures that increases recovery time while maintaining quality of life.

More patients are turning to alternative medicines and treatments to supplement or replace primary prostate cancer treatment regimes in order to diminish cancer symptoms and procedure side-effects. Of course, as with all cancer treatments, patients need to consult with their doctor as to which therapy or alternative treatment option will best serve their needs. Although some of these emerging procedures and therapies have a low risk of side-effects and a high rate of survival, the rate will vary when combined with other treatments and depend on certain patient factors, such as the stage of cancer the patient is in.

Clinical trials are being done to test advancements in both surgical and non-invasive procedures that not only get patients back on their feet in less time, but help them maintain function and quality of life. If a patient has already tried multiple treatments with little success, enrolling in a clinical trial for one of these emerging technologies may be the best chance of beating prostate cancer. Physicians should always be consulted before enrolling in any new study, seeing as some treatments may negatively affect others.

Ongoing research focused on causes, prevention, and treatments for prostate cancer are changing the way doctors and patients look at the disease. As technology advances, so do the chances of prostate cancer survival and prevention. Many alternative treatments for cancer are now giving patients hope that not only will they survive, but their quality of life will not suffer.
