Prostate cancer surgery also known as a radical prostatectomy is a surgical procedure whereby the prostate gland and attached seminal vesicles are removed. Lymph nodes near the prostate are usually removed at the same time. Radical prostatectomy is one option for men with clinically localized prostate cancer. Surgery is one of two main treatments for early-stage prostate cancer; radiation is the other. Surgery may be done to remove the prostate and its cancer. It may be done to remove and test lymph nodes in the area to see whether the cancer has spread. It also may be done to fix urinary problems that are caused by a tumor pressing on the urethra. The treatment options for prostate cancer depend in part on whether the tumor has spread. For tumors that are still inside the prostate, radiation therapy and a surgery called radical prostatectomy are common treatment options. Watchful waiting is also a treatment option. In this approach, no treatment is given until the tumor gets bigger. Watchful waiting may be the best choice for an older man who has a higher risk of dying from something other than his prostate cancer. Generally, tumors that have grown beyond the edge of the prostate can't be cured with either radiation or surgery. They can be treated with hormones that slow the cancer's growth. Advantages of prostate cancer surgery are once the prostate is removed and studied by a pathologist, one has an accurate assessment of cancer aggressiveness, follow-up after surgery is relatively straightforward; the serum PSA level should be undetectable. Recurrence of cancer is relatively easy to detect because of this, radiation can be given after surgery, if necessary, with a low risk of any additional side effects and surgery appears to be associated with a very low risk of late local recurrence if careful and sensitive PSA testing is performed. Patients who are in good health, have a long life expectancy and have cancers which appear to be confined to the prostate gland are candidates for radical prostatectomy. The procedure is associated with a limited risk of side effects and major complications are very rare. Some men may be candidates for a nerve-sparing radical prostatectomy whereby sexual function preservation is attempted.
