Consultation qualifying for prostate cancer treatment
Hardly anybody likes frequent visits to a doctor. However, regular monitoring of one's health allows to notice worrying changes in Patient's body sufficiently early, and to prevent disease development.
Therefore, Patients who are currently diagnosing their condition, are recommended to come to a consultation qualifying for prostate cancer treatment at the HIFU CLINIC Prostate Cancer Treatment Centre.
What does the consultation qualifying for prostate cancer treatment involve?
Before making a decision about treatment method for prostate cancer, a urological consultation with possible qualification for a procedure is necessary. As each Patient is qualified for treatment individually, please, take your complete medical records with you, including information about any previous treatment.
Qualification for a procedure is based on results of diagnostic tests and summary information sheets concerning previous treatment provided by the Patient, medical interview and possible additional tests that may be recommended after the consultation.
We also provide active surveillance using the latest available tools and imaging methods.
What does qualification involve?
Qualification for treatment involves the following components:
- Detailed medical interview and urological examination
- History of PSA levels dynamics and current results
- A result of histopathological examination of sections collected during correctly performed multicore prostate biopsy
- TRUS (transrectal ultrasound scan) assessment
- Local staging (usually by magnetic resonance imaging)
- In some cases - assessment of lymph nodes, a skeleton and other tissues to exclude metastases
NOTE: If the Patient does not have results of all tests listed above, please, take all results of diagnostic tests performed to this date.
