Surgery

Numerous options exist for surgical removal of cancerous tumors. This is best done before it spreads outside the prostate. A radical prostatectomy is a procedure in which the entire prostate and seminal vesicles are removed. The risks include problems with sexual functions and urinary incontinence. Robotic or laparoscopic prostatectomy uses a camera, making it a less invasive procedure compared to other surgical options. Cryosurgery is less common and involves freezing the cancer cells.
