Permanent Brachytherapy is a most appropriate treatment option for many men with early prostate cancer. The relapse-free survival rate (~85% at 10 to15 years) is equal to the best surgical results.
In 1999 Prostate Implants New Zealand Ltd were the first group to introduce prostate brachytherapy treatment as an option for men in New Zealand. We are now a very experienced team. Permanent brachytherapy is a high-tech procedure and right from the start we instigated a quality assurance program to assess the quality of the implants and thus the success and safety of the brachytherapy treatment. We have presented our data regularly at national and international meetings Brachytherapy is recognised by health insurance companies who fund it in a similar way to surgical treatments. Unfortunately it is not provided in the public health system because of the higher cost.
The advantages of brachytherapy include:
  • Short hospital stay - usually overnight Minimally invasive procedure (not an operation) Early return to usual activities Few long term side effects

Prostate Implants NZ Ltd uses facililties at Southern Cross Healthcare's Brightside Hospital, Epsom (shown above).

If you or a friend or relative have been diagnosed with prostate cancer, you will find much more detailed information on our patient information site, CancerHelp UK Summary Prostate cancer is the commonest cancer in men in the UK, with over 30,100 new cases a year. The lifetime risk for being diagnosed with prostate cancer is 1 in 14. The cancer develops from cells within the prostate gland. The majority of prostate cancers are slow growing and many men are unaware that they have this cancer. However, a small number of prostate cancers grow more quickly and may spread to other parts of the body. Risk factors
  • Age
    Prostate cancer is rare in men under the age of 50 years.
    Family history
    The risk of developing prostate cancer increases if there is a first-degree relative (father or brother) who was diagnosed with prostate cancer at a young age. Having an elderly relative with prostate cancer is not uncommon and does not increase the risk. In a small number of cases, prostate cancer runs in families because of a faulty BRCA2 gene.
    Radioactive substances
    Exposure to certain radioactive substances, e.g. in the nuclear industry, may increase the risk of prostate cancer.

    Overview Prostate cancer is cancer of the prostate gland. This is the small, walnut-shaped gland that surrounds the bottom portion ("neck") of a male's bladder and about the first inch of the urinary tube (urethra), the channel that drains fluid from the bladder. It's located behind the pubic bone and in front of the rectum. The prostate's primary function is to produce seminal fluid, the fluid that nourishes and transports sperm. This type of cancer is the most common cancer in American men. The American Cancer Society estimates that about 230,000 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer annually in the United States and that about 29,000 men die of the disease.

130. Meat: The Recipe For Prostate Cancer
Information about the link between eating meat and prostate cancer.
The Recipe For Prostate Cancer
In the West, prostate cancer is the second largest killer of men after lung cancer. A international study recently conducted by researchers at the University of Massachusetts Medical School showed that men who eat the most meat and dairy products run the greatest risk of dying from the disease. Published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute (1998), the report confirmed that men who eat plenty of grains and nuts are the least likely to die from prostate cancer. The study was based on a survey of cancer deaths in 59 countries. It corroborated the results of earlier investigations into the role of a meat-based diet in cardiovascular disease and cancer. A higher intake of cereals, nuts and oil seeds, on the other hand, has a protective effect. Thus the plant-based diets found in many less-advanced societies are the healthiest - as long as people get enough to eat. "For prostate cancer and cancers of other sites that are sensitive to serum (blood) hormone levels, animal fat may influence the risk for cancer by raising adult's sex hormone levels", the report notes. The third-biggest cancer killer in the United States is colon cancer - another thoroughly nasty disease. Colon cancer, too, has been strongly linked with a diet high in animal fat and low in fruits, vegetables and whole-grain products.

Prostate Cancer
No One Answer for Testing or Treatment
by John Henkel Russ Ingram didn't sense pending calamity when he reported for a company physical seven years ago. After all, he was in good shape and, at 39, still very much a robust young man with no signs of health problems. During part of the exam, however, the doctor noticed that Ingram's prostate was enlarged. While this can indicate a tumor, often it signals a common benign prostate condition, usually in men much older than Ingram. But a visit to a urologist produced the grim news that his condition was not benign. He had prostate cancer. "I was devastated," says Ingram. "Due to my age, I didn't think there was anything to worry about. It caught me totally off guard. I didn't even know where the prostate was."

U.S. Preventive Services Task Force
Screening for Prostate Cancer
Release Date: December 2002 Summary of Recommendations Supporting Documents
Summary of Recommendations
  • The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) concludes that the evidence is insufficient to recommend for or against routine screening for prostate cancer using prostate specific antigen (PSA) testing or digital rectal examination (DRE). Rating: I recommendation Rationale : The USPSTF found good evidence that PSA screening can detect early-stage prostate cancer but mixed and inconclusive evidence that early detection improves health outcomes. Screening is associated with important harms, including frequent false-positive results and unnecessary anxiety, biopsies, and potential complications of treatment of some cancers that may never have affected a patient's health. The USPSTF concludes that evidence is insufficient to determine whether the benefits outweigh the harms for a screened population.
