Why Dr. David Samadi is Convinced that Budding Prostate Cancer Should Be Treated Surgically

Mitt Romney, Colin Powell, and John Kerry are prominent American politicians, but they have more in common than just politics; They are prostate cancer survivors. While they were diagnosed with prostate cancer at different times, each of them opted for surgical prostate cancer treatment regimen.

In an article published on Huff Post, Dr. David Samadi, a respected urologist, throws his weight behind surgery, as a prostate cancer treatment method. Dr. David Samadi, also known as a celebrity doctor, argues that surgery, especially when prostate cancer is budding, is a proven treatment method with survival rates, in some instances, at almost 100 percent.

Apart from increased chances of survival, surgery, unlike the use of radiation to combat prostate cancer, does not foster the development of secondary cancer. Several studies have concluded that the use of radiation to treat prostate cancer may lead to rectal or bladder cancers. In addition, radiation could complicate prostate cancer to the extent that surgery may become an unviable treatment option.

The successful use of surgery to treat prostate cancer depends on some factors chief among them is the experience of the oncologisturologist involved. An experienced urologist with many successful surgeries is likely to perform a life-saving surgery. Dr. David Samadi warns of several complications associated with prostate cancer surgery such as loss of urinary continence.
