Robotic prostatectomy surgeon, Dr. David Samadi, explains news about the potential and somewhat confusing link between birth control pills and prostate cancer. An observational study conducted by the British Medical Journal in Toronto found an increased incidence of deadly prostate cancer in countries where a significantly large number of women are taking oral contraception for long periods of time. The hypothesis, Dr. Samadi, explains is based on the potential for estrogen to be secreted through women’s urine, enter the water supply and ultimately be consumed in trace amounts by men. As Vice Chairman of the Department of Urology and Chief of Robotics and Minimally Invasive Surgery at The Mount Sinai Medical Center, Dr. Samadi is knowledgeable in all aspects of prostate cancer and explains that the data linking estrogen levels and prostate cancer is mixed. These findings require much further exploration, he says.

I chose to undergo the operation with a specialist in the U.S., who has an extensive experience in robotic surgeries: Dr. David Smadi. The surgery was relatively simple: i didn't suffer any pain, lost a small amount of blood and had the catheter only for seven days. I got back to full functioning very soon afterwards.
