A recent interview shares prostate cancer survivor, Eddie Soles’, decision to end his sex life. While this a decision that some men are unfortunately faced with, for others, this doesn’t have to be the case. With advances in technology and the ability to pinpoint the cancer using image-guidance, patients can undergo focal therapy to remove the cancer while leaving their sexual function unaffected. Focal therapy for prostate cancer, such as focal laser ablation, is a good option for some men with low grade prostate cancer who seek an alternative to active surveillance and more aggressive treatments like radical prostatectomy or radiation which come along with undesirable side effects including impotence and incontinence.
Whether you’re unsure of your options or would like a second opinion, the team at Laser Prostate Centers of America can help.
