New Development in Prostate Cancer treatment

New Development in Prostate Cancer treatment

It has been recently revealed in a report that there has been a new type of treatment mode found for staving off the effects of prostate cancer. This comes as good news for men, who might be at a risk of the dangerous disease. It has been revealed according to an early research done by the Prostate Intervention Versus Observation Trust (PIVOT) that the preliminary tests being conducted for this new mode of treatment might be able to help decrease the effects of the disease in the time to come.

This intervention in the disease and its various complications might be able to help in proper diagnosis as well as the right sort of treatment for the disease in the time to come. Prostate cancer is the commonest form of cancer found in men. It has been seen that an increasing number of men are being affected by this disease in recent times. This calls for the dire need for helping them in the time to come. It remains to be seen what steps can be taken by the health authorities to make these preliminary plans final and develop them into a sure shot cure in the time to come.

“Biopsies miss one in two tumors while a high-quality MRI scan can rule out important cancer — tumors that require urgent treatment in 95 per cent of men with prostate cancer”, said the lead author of the study, Professor Mark Emberton, from the University College Hospital.

It remains to be seen how this study can be developed further and how there can be a feasible way for the effective cure from the disease in the near future. This might be able to save thousands of lives each year.
