Patients can avail a free-of-cost uroflowmetry test
Nanavati Super Speciality Hospital (NSSH) will be organising a prostate camp on February 16. The core objective of the camp is to create awareness about the advantages of early screening and detection in people with primary prostate complications and improve the survival rate of patients with prostate cancer.
“Most of our patient to have undergone successful surgeries for prostate cancer had a high early detection rate. This simply translates into one should not avoid primary symptoms of prostate cancer such as difficulty in passing urine, weak urine flow, frequent urination, blood in urine and family history of prostate cancer,” said Dr Vivek Venkat, Robotic Uro-Onco surgeon, NSSH.
Those who visit the camp can avail a free-of-cost uroflowmetry test and expert’s consultation till noon.
“With early detection, we can improve the treatment outcome in patients with radiation therapy or surgery. Through advanced robotic surgery, we achieve minimal blood loss, smaller cuts to the abdominal tissue, better vision of internal organs to a surgeon and lesser days of hospitalisation. The chances of a patient surviving for more than 10 years are very high if prostate cancer is treated at an early stage,” said Dr Sanjay Nabar, Head and Senior Consultant, Centre for Urology, NSSH.
