New Technologies for Treating Prostate Cancer

Key Takeaways:

  1. Technology has revolutionized the way we approach and treat prostate cancer, but outdated information and misconceptions can still impact patients’ treatment journeys.
  2. Overcoming mental anguish and fear is a key part of the battle against prostate cancer.
  3. Advanced Urology Institute is at the forefront of adopting novel technologies for prostate cancer treatment.

Facing the Fear of the Past

“We have to overcome the fear itself of what they know from 30, 40 years ago, 20 years ago,” says Fred, an experienced radiation therapist at the Advanced Prostate Cancer Institute. The fear Fred speaks of is often derived from a patient’s personal history. Family members suffer from various forms of cancer and the horrifying memories of treatment linger on. Additionally, this serves to intensify the fear associated with the diagnosis of prostate cancer. Unfortunately, these fears are often exacerbated by misconceptions and outdated information.

A New Era in Prostate Cancer Treatment

“Technology has changed so much…it’s almost impossible for somebody who isn’t around it on a daily basis to know what the differences are and how much different it is and how much easier it is on the patients now,” Fred assures. The basics of cancer have remained the same. However, the revolution lies in the way we approach and treat prostate cancer today

Over the last five years, the field of oncology has witnessed rapid changes. The changes are so momentous that it astounds even medical professionals. Despite this, the technological advancements in treatment have far outpaced the common knowledge about prostate cancer. Consequently, this gap between past perceptions and present realities not only complicates the treatment journey for patients but also presents therapists like Fred with a unique challenge.

Beyond the Physical: Tackling Mental Anguish

A key part of the battle against prostate cancer lies in overcoming mental hurdles. Fred notes that “it’s about getting over the mental anguish that the patient is going through, trying to get them to relax and let their body just be normal so that we can actually take care of the problem.”

Recognizing the prominence of mental distress in the treatment journey is a crucial first step. Each cancer and every patient is unique and different. A patient grappling with prostate cancer in Oxford, FL, cannot be expected to have the same experience as one dealing with lung or breast cancer, for instance.
