  • Discomfort or a burning sensation during urination
  • Difficulty urinating

  • Pain in your lower back, sides, or pelvis

Cysto-Endourology Suite

This specially designed suite allows urologists to closely examine the urinary system to diagnose several conditions. Commonly used to address blood in the urine and other symptoms, a small camera is inserted into the urethra to provide a clear view of the bladder and identify any issues. This allows our team to provide a more accurate diagnosis and deliver the best treatment possible.

Shock Wave Lithotripsy for Kidney Stones

This noninvasive treatment offers an alternative to the surgical treatment of kidney stones. Shock waves, acoustic pulses generated by an energy source, break up stones found in the kidneys or urethra into smaller pieces that may pass easily in the urine. Stones are located using ultrasound or fluoroscopy technology, which allows urologists to precisely target shock waves. Your doctor will then place a water-filled cushion against your skin or direct you to rest in a water bath during the treatment process, which is performed under sedation to ensure your comfort.

Know the Symptoms and Risk Factors

Many patients have no symptoms of Prostate Cancer. However, family history of Prostate Cancer is a risk factor not to be ignored.

Diagnostic Tests

If your primary care physician identifies signs of prostate cancer, he or she will refer you to our urology service center for diagnosis, as well as our oncology services for management. A variety of tests will help determine the severity of the condition and which treatments are most appropriate.

Some of the diagnostic methods used include:

  • Laboratory services: Blood and tissue samples are collected and analyzed to identify unusual results that signal the presence of cancer.
  • MRI: An MRI uses magnetic fields to give a view of the patient’s body and help doctor’s locate and assess the size of a tumor.
  • CT scan: A CT scan creates a three-dimensional view of the body so doctors can examine a tumor from different perspectives.
  • Nuclear Medicine: Bone scan and PET scan are included under nuclear medicine tests, a substance will be injected that is absorbed to reveal where cancer is and how much is present.

Prostate Cancer Treatment

Radiation therapy is one of the methods our oncologists use to treat prostate cancer. A highly effective way to destroy cancer cells, radiation therapy uses high-energy radiation channeled through a linear accelerator to target tumor DNA. The treatment plan is customized to treat the cancer while sparing normal surrounding tissues.

Brachytherapy is another form of therapy that delivers internal radiation to eradicate cancer cells. This method can be used on a tumor inside the body to eradicate the cancer from inside out.

Other treatment methods, such as chemotherapy, hormonal therapy, and surgery, may also be utilized. The oncology team will work with you to create a plan that takes into consideration your specific diagnosis, overall health, and other factors to determine the most appropriate methods for treatment.

Counseling and Support

Cancer treatment affects more than your body. In fact, you may experience depression, anxiety and stress during treatment and recovery, as well as a host of emotions that can be challenging to manage.
