What is prostatectomy?

Prostate gland is located between the bladder and the penis and in front of the rectum. The prostate gland secretes a fluid that protects and nourishes the sperm and helps produce semen. Prostate cancer is one of the most common types of cancer in men. Prostate cancer is usually a very slow growing cancer, often causing no symptoms until it is in an advanced stage. Prostatectomy is one of the most definite treatments of prostate cancer.

• Individuals who have prostate cancer

The surgeon may use a visual scope to look inside your urethra and bladder to check the size of prostate and examine the urinary system. Blood tests may be asked too. Patients will be asked to fast for 8 hours before the procedure, generally after midnight. Patients should stop smoking as soon as possible prior to the procedure in order to improve the chances for a successful recovery from surgery and to improve overall health status. Patients should stop taking certain medications such as Aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs and herbal supplements prior to the surgery.
