Prostate Cancer Awareness – Current Trends in Prostate Cancer

Dr. Clayton Lau, chief, Division of Urology and Urologic Oncology at City of Hope, a leading-edge cancer research and treatment organization, discusses how prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) PET scans significantly improve prostate cancer detection and treatment. He talks about single-port robotic prostatectomy that improves recovery time and how prostate surgery is increasingly becoming an outpatient procedure with same-day discharge.

At City of Hope since 2006, Clayton S. Lau, M.D., specializes in minimally invasive approaches to urologic oncology and reconstructive urology. He has performed over 3,500 robotic and laparoscopic procedures. He has also trained numerous surgeons in robotic surgery throughout the U.S. He is an international expert in robotic surgery and has been invited to lecture and perform robotic surgeries internationally.

Dr. Lau is known for the close, professional relationship he establishes with his patients. He goes the extra mile to make sure they know everything they need to know about their urologic malignancy treatment options – and that includes getting a second opinion.

“Second opinions are very important for any patient who has been diagnosed with cancer,” he says. “I see about 20 to 30 second opinion patients per month.”

Your secret weapon when fighting Prostate Cancer [Video]

By Dr. David Samadi Let’s face it; cancer can be scary and very bad. You may feel out-of-control or lost about what you should or should not be doing. But, no matter what cancer you are diagnosed with, just about every oncologist agrees with (and should recommend) is to exercise. Research shows that for most cancer patients, exercise is safe and helpful before, during, and after cancer treatment. Even with a cancer diagnosis, it’s important to keep physically active, if possible. The human body is made to move, in sickness (most of the time) and in health. Of course, depending on what type of cancer, there are various treatments to battle it. But, fighting cancer also requires an “empowered” patient rather than a “passive patient.” Not exercising can lead to loss of muscle mass and functional decline. Research shows it’s better to move more than to move less.
