Advanced Prostate Cancer Patients Usually Benefit from Radical Prostatectomy

Posted on February 12, 2016 by Disability Help Group

If you are permanently disabled because of a medical condition, you may be entitled to receive Social Security disability benefits.

According to a report from Disabled World, advanced prostate cancer patients usually benefit from radical prostatectomy. Researchers from the Mayo Clinic found in a study that a prostatectomy-the removal of the prostate gland-provided 80% of patients a 20-year rate of survival.

Yet, most patients with advanced stages of prostate cancer have not been offered this option. Treatment generally consists of either hormone therapy or radiation. These findings suggest that a prostatectomy should be another option available.

This additional treatment option for those with advanced prostate cancer brings hope for a better quality of life, for a longer period of time. This is good news since according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), every year in the United States 223,307 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer and 29,093 lose their fight to it.
