They study furthers finds that the surgery can control and check the prospect of prostate cancer. Due to PSA blood tests there has been increase in the number of prostate cancers detected at early stage. The doctors now look forward for better treatment and cure. Surgeries are one way to control the problem and it is proving beneficial in big way. Dr. Otis Brawley, chief medical officer of the American Cancer Society believes, “This study tells us we should be very careful about treating anyone over the age of 65 ... and anyone who has low-grade disease. In the U.S., fewer men are getting treatment right away, and "that's a good trend and we need to continue that.”
