Which Prostate Cancers Really Need Treatment?
Date:7/9/2013

MIAMI, July 9, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Urologyweb.com, a leading website from Dr. Bert Vorstman, has recently posted a new article outlining which prostate cancers really need treatment.

"Most prostate cancers diagnosed are classed as the low or favorable-risk Gleason 6 (3+3) prostate cancer and the majority of these cancers behave like insignificant pseudo cancers, do not progress and do not need any treatment whether through focal therapy or whole gland treatment. 

"These cancers should simply be monitored through active surveillance", said Dr Vorstman, a Coral Springs Florida urologistwith over 30 years of experience in managing localized prostate cancer. In addition, Dr Vorstman warned that, "For many men, their road to debilitation and zero benefits began with the highly unreliable PSA prostate cancer screening blood test followed by the risky and painful office prostate biopsy. The finding of some insignificant prostate cancer was then license for misinformation, misrepresentation and falsehoods culminating in mismanagement and mistreatment. In fact, the risk of Gleason 6 (3+3) treatment harm is greater than the risk of the untreated insignificant prostate cancer." Dr Vorstman added, "Particularly disturbing is the gross overtreatment of most of these Gleason 6 (3+3) prostate cancers with the toxic, irreversible radical surgery/robotic prostatectomy for which there is no evidence based medicine support. This unproven, emasculating radical surgery/robotic prostatectomy for insignificant Gleason 6 (3+3) cancers represents "modern day" human experimentation. 

"At 20 years, these patients, or "sufferers" are survivors of their treatment, not survivors of their insignificant cancer." Furthermore said Dr
