The main side effect of prostate cancer surgery is pain. Although patients are often uncomfortable during the first few days after surgery, their pain can be controlled with medicine. Patients should feel free to discuss pain relief with the doctor or nurse. It is also common for patients to feel tired or weak for a while. The length of time it takes to recover from an operation varies for each patient.
Surgery to remove the prostate may cause permanent impotence and sometimes causes urinary incontinence. These side effects of prostate cancer surgery are somewhat less common than in the past. Some surgeons use new methods, especially when removing small tumors. These techniques, called nerve-sparing surgery, may prevent permanent injury to the nerves that control erection and damage to the opening of the bladder. When this surgery is fully successful, impotence and urinary incontinence are only temporary. However, men who have a prostatectomy no longer produce semen, so they have dry orgasms.
The choice of treatment will differ for each individual. A person’s age, general health, grade and stage of the cancer, symptoms, lifestyle and personal choice will all be taken into account. It is important that time is taken to consider the treatment options available. Treatment options include:
Prostate cancer is usually slow growing. If no symptoms are present the doctor may recommend no treatment apart from regular PSA blood tests and monitoring.
This approach will be most suitable for low stage (T1-2, N0, M0), low grade prostate cancers.
If the prostate cancer is causing a decreased urine flow or a complete blockage, surgery to relieve this may be required before any other treatment is undertaken.
Trans urethral resection of the prostate (TURP) is a surgical technique that allows blockages within the prostate gland to be removed. This surgery involves inserting a telescope-like instrument (resectoscope) into the penis and up through the urethra, until it is positioned within the prostate gland. A heated wire is inserted through the resectoscope and is used to remove excess prostate tissue that may be causing a blockage or restriction in urine flow. Hospital stay after a TURP is usually 2-3 days.
In cases where the cancer has not spread beyond the prostate, surgical removal of the prostate gland may be recommended. Known as a radical prostatectomy, it involves removal of the entire prostate gland and possibly also the adjacent lymph nodes. It can be performed via an incision in the lower abdomen (retropubic approach) or via an incision in the perineal area (area between the scrotum and anus). A hospital stay of 4 – 5 days following surgery is usual.
Urinary incontinence and erectile dysfunction are potential side effects of a radical prostatectomy. Surgical techniques that avoid the nerves responsible for bladder control and sexual function ("nerve sparing" surgery) can help reduce the incidence of these side effects.

Salvage treatment involves treating a histologically confined, locally recurrent, organ-confined, non-metastatic prostate cancer. In this treatment, an acoustic wave is sent through the tissue. A part of it is absorbed and converted to heat. The tissue is damaged due to the elevated temperature and the duration of exposure or thermal dose. By focusing at more than one place or by scanning the focus, a volume can be thermally ablated. So what are these beams made of? HIFU for Prostate Cancer Treatment in India makes use of ultrasound beams that when focused on a deceased tissue heats it up and raises its temperature from 65 to 85oC. This destroys the tissue by coagulation necrosis. Much higher temperatures are avoided as they made alter the other tissues’ composition. Anesthesia is not recommended nor required and the treatment can be combined with radiotherapy or chemotherapy. It is a non-invasive process and hence also named as “Non-Invasive HIFU Surgery”. By the use of a trans-rectal probe, the heat developed by focusing ultrasound waves into the prostate is used to kill the tumor.
