Diagnostics, laparoscopy, surgery using robot assistants
The Seoul National University Hospital was formed in 1885. Today it is one of the leading medical institutions in the country, which has been actively accepting foreign patients since 1978. One of the directions of the hospital is the treatment of prostate cancer in men.
Prostate cancer is a fairly common type of malignant tumor, most commonly found in men older than 40 years. About 400,000 calls to medical centers with the disease are registered annually.
A comprehensive diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer is carried out at the National Seoul University Hospital. Minimally invasive methods of surgical treatment are used, in which healthy tissues are minimally affected, which speeds up the recovery and makes the procedure itself safer for the body.
Leading experts, modern equipment, the latest diagnostic and treatment technologies are all here. Including robotic assisting technology for more accurate work and the most accurate operations.
Causes, Symptoms and Diagnosis of Prostate Cancer
One of the first possible causes of prostate cancer is obesity. In thin people, the disease is much less common. Among other reasons can be identified:
race (light-skinned people do not get sick so often);
However, all of the above reasons are rather "auxiliary." The main reason was and remains aging. Age-related changes in the body can provoke cancer. And most importantly, the initial symptoms almost never suspect cancer in the early stages.
Frequent urination may be one of the signs of prostate cancer. Moreover, both day and night. The stream of urine becomes more impetuous and inconstant. After urination often remains a feeling of incomplete emptying of the bladder, discomfort and pain in the perineum. It can also be observed erectile dysfunction, the appearance of blood in the composition of urine and sperm. The problem is that the first signs of the disease are very similar to other diseases of the prostate gland and the genitourinary system in general.
