Dr. David Samadi is no doubt a celebrity doctor, continually hitting the headlines for his indispensable advice on health and wellness. The doctor, presently based at Lenox Hill Hospital, recently penned an article on Huff Post regarding prostate cancer and its most effective treatment.
Dr. Samadi unreservedly discloses that surgery is superior to radiation therapy, concerning the treatment of localized prostate cancer. Dr. Samadi’s advice is likely to benefit 164, 690 men, who will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2018, according to the American Cancer Society. The society further discloses that more than 90 percent of men who will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2018 will have the cancer localized to their prostates. Dr. Samadi affirms that men with localized prostate cancer who opt for surgery as opposed to radiation therapy have almost 100 percent survival rate.
Additionally, Dr. Samadi notes that radiation therapy has been on the receiving end, with urologists suspecting that it is responsible for secondary cancers in prostate cancer patients. Reports of prostate cancer patients developing rectal or bladder cancers are frequent, especially if those patients were treated with radiation therapy.
However, it is not enough to pick surgery over radiation therapy, warned Dr. Samadi. Prostate cancer patients should strive to choose crème de la crème of urologists, experienced urologists who have performed numerous successful surgeries. It is only then that patients can rest assured that they will beat back prostate cancer.
As a source of encouragement to prostate cancer patients, Dr. Samadi uses the experiences of popular politicians, who were diagnosed with prostate cancer and survived the disease. They include Mitt Romney, Colin Powell, and John Kerry. Dr. Samadi, however, emphasizes that the three were treated with surgery as opposed to radiation therapy.
