NEW YORK, April 21, 2015 /PRNewswire/
Chairman of Urology, Chief of Robotic Surgery at Lenox Hill Hospital and world renowned robotic prostate cancer surgeon, Dr. David Samadi, is offering men recently diagnosed with prostate cancer a free consultation.
"Men need to understand the power of a second opinion, especially when it comes to treating prostate cancer. Men have come to me after a previous urologist recommended a specific treatment path such as watchful waiting. Upon further examination, I may find watchful waiting isn't the right option for them. In some cases, the cancer can be more aggressive than previous tests indicate and surgery or another treatment option may be necessary," said Dr. Samadi.
Go to ProstateCancer911.com and call 212.365.5000 to set up your free consultation with Dr. Samadi and get a second opinion on the right prostate cancer treatment for you.
"In order to find the right treatment option for prostate cancer, men need to arm themselves with information. This requires vigilance and knowing the right questions to ask their doctor," stressed Dr. Samadi.
Men who undergo a prostate biopsy can receive a parallel diagnosis, high-grade prostatic intraepithelial neoplasia, in which prostate cells are atypical but not yet cancerous. If a biopsy is negative, it doesn't always indicate a man is cancer-free. Diagnostics can miss the area with cancer. These "cancer-like" cells that may show up from a biopsy need to be closely monitored. This is an example of how a second opinion is critical in the diagnosis of prostate cancer. Some of these cells are at a high risk of turning into cancer.
"Having another pathologist, or two, review the biopsy and make sure there is no cancer present can only help, not hurt," noted Dr. Samadi.
"Keep on fighting to get the care you deserve. As an oncologist, who has seen thousands of men from every corner of the globe with prostate cancer, I can tell you without question that patients know what is best for their health and quality of life. Learn to act on that knowledge and understand all your treatment options before you make a choice."
