Prostate Cryosurgery

Cancer of the prostate is the second biggest cause of male deaths in the western world. Traditionally this type of cancer is treated by long term radiation therapy or radical prostate surgery. But now a new technique is being developed by Dr Richard Milsten at the Underwood Memorial Hospital in New Jersey, inserting a 'cryoprobe' into the prostate gland and freezing the cancer cells. The operation itself takes only 15 minutes with little risk of surgical complications, patients rarely need any form of pain relief, and are able to go home after a day. Cryosurgery therefore offers a valuable additon to the choice of therapies available for treating prostate cancer. `
