is revolutionary in terms of recovery time and how minimally invasive it is by nature. It is because of this that it is growing quickly in popularity regardless of it not being performed in the states as of yet. When compared to other traditional methods of prostate treatment, which can require invasive surgeries, and lengthy in patient recovery.

While as of now you can't get the procedure done in the US , many doctors like myself travel outside of the country to perform the procedure on you. Cryo-therapy is in the process of being FDA approved, and is looking positive thus far. The approval process is lengthy even for the most obvious shoe in of a procedure.

Being that there is no scalpel involved in the procedure, you run less of a chance of significant blood loss. This is critical for older patients. Cryo-therapy for prostate cancer consists simply of freezing the cancerous tissue until it is dead. While this is a known effective cure for prostate cancer, there is a chance you would have to get multiple sessions. This being said, cryo-therapy is one of the best known cures for prostate cancer thus far.

Cryo-Therapy is a bit different than other forms of prostate cancer treatment, so naturally, the patients who qualify for this treatment will vary from different treatment methods. This form of therapy is generally recommended for men who are newly diagnosed with prostate cancer, but can also be available for patients who have had returning cancer after previous treatment sessions.

There have been many advancements in the treatment since it was first introduced. The amount of side effects has greatly lessened, as well as the severity of those that are still present. The most common side effect is issues with sexual dysfunction. So if you are still actively seeking to be sexually active, you may want to consider an alternative form of prostate cancer treatment.

The process of cryo-therapy is relatively non-invasive. It freezes the prostate tissue, and as a result the cancerous cells die. This is an appealing alternative than tradition surgery, as recovery time is much shorter, and the procedure is less painful. If you are considering any form of prostate cancer treatment, consult with your doctor to help determine what route is best for you.

First things first, what exactly is a PSA test?

PSA stands for prostate-specific antigen, which is a protein made by the prostate gland. So how exactly does this relate to prostate cancer? The more of this prostate specific antigen that is in a man's body, the more likely he is to have prostate cancer. The PSA test is FDA approved and is the main way to identify whether or not a patient is positive for prostate cancer.

An elevated PSA level is not enough to prove one has cancer though. There have been incidents where a patient's PSA levels were high, but he did not have prostate cancer. High PSA is just a hint to begin looking deeper into the issue to find more solid signs of cancer. Most doctors will recommend a prostate biopsy if the patient is suspected to have prostate cancer. Samples of the prostate tissue are taken and examined under a microscope.

Having regular PSA tests can help detect prostate cancer earlier, and earlier detection means a higher survival rate. There is a lot that you can do on a daily basis to help prevent prostate cancer, simples things such as exercising and maintaining a healthy lifestyle and diet. Be sure that once you hit age 50 that you are taking regular trips to your doctor to have your prostate examined, and your PSA levels taken.

After prostate cancer diagnosis, you will have various options for which treatment will work best for you. With all the different procedures out there, its pertinent that you do your research and talk with your doctor before committing to any one treatment. Cryotherapy is a relatively new procedure, but is quickly growing in popularity amongst men with prostate cancer. 
Cryotherapy is relatively non-invasive when compared to traditional surgery or chemo therapy.  Instead of cutting away at cancerous tissue in your prostate, or simply removing it, cryotherapy uses highly localized blasts of subzero temperatures to freeze away the bad tissue. This procedure is more appealing to patients who previously thought the only treatment for cancer was traditional surgery.
Apart from the minimally invasive nature of the procedure, there are many other benefits to cryotherapy. It has a reduced period of recovery when compared to other procedures, and additionally, has less of a chance of there being a significant amount of blood loss. Patients also reported that the pain after they had it done was less than they expected, and far less than the pain they would have encountered if they opted for traditional prostate cancer surgery. Although cryotherapy is still in its baby stages, and occasionally requires multiple operations to be successful, the benefits far outweigh that single downfall.
Dr. Lotenfoe has performed this procedure numerous times, among other forms of prostate cancer treatment. If you are hesitant about it, or have questions, we are here to help. Prostate cancer is scary, and it's expected that you will need help getting on the right track. Cryotherapy is definitely a procedure to consider.
