My Son was admitted with a very rare autoimmune illness in April this year. The care he was given was superb Prof Dheda, Prof Louw and their team of specialists covered every possibility , diagnosed efficiently and treated effectively. There was time taken to explain everything. The Hospital Matron made allowances for me to spend as much as possible time with my son and also allowed for frequent visits from close family. Mr Daniel Mathew the Hospital General manager is very approachable and interested . The staff was friendly and helpful. Basically every one from reception through admin to ICU was friendly and helpful. I Highly recommend this hospital

    What you need to know about Prostate Cancer Treatment in South Africa

    An early stage of Prostate Cancer

    There is no single prostate cancer treatment that can be used for everyone, but your doctor will recommend one for you which is dependent on several factors, such as the stage of the disease, your age, your general health, your personal preference, as well as how quickly the tumor is likely to grow. The main treatment for prostate cancer includes surgery, radiation, chemotherapy, and immunotherapy.

    What does a Prostate Cancer Treatment Procedure Involve?

    If you are generally healthy and cancer has not spread, surgery is the best option. Surgery is performed during general anesthetic and may involve removing your prostate gland and the tissue around it. Following on with radiation therapy, high-energy beams (similar to X-rays) are used to kill the cancer cells, or with chemotherapy, drugs taken by the mouth or through an IV are used to kill cancer cells and shrink the tumors. For advanced prostate cancer, immunotherapy is used to use your immune system to fight cancer.

    How Long Should I Stay in South Africa for a Prostate Cancer Treatment Procedure?

    The procedure you underwent will determine the amount of time you need to spend in South Africa. After surgery, you may need to stay for around 7 to 14 days. For chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and immunotherapy, your length of stay depends on how many cycles are needed for your specific case. 

    MyMediTravel currently lists 4 facilities in South Africa offering Prostate Cancer Treatment procedures - see above for the complete list, along with estimated prices. The price of a Prostate Cancer Treatment can vary according to each individual’s case and will be determined based on your medical profile and an in-person assessment with the specialist.

    What's the Recovery Time for Prostate Cancer Treatment Procedures in South Africa?

    After prostate cancer surgery, most men will get back to normal within six to eight weeks, but you may be able to go back to work within 3-4 weeks. After any type of therapy, you should be able to return to work the next day or if there are no symptoms that interfere with your ability to work. Make sure to ask your doctor how long until you can resume your normal activities, including exercises and heavy lifting.

    What sort of Aftercare is Required for Prostate Cancer Treatment Procedures in South Africa?

    Your doctor will likely give you instructions, which may include eating a healthy, balanced diet and performing light exercises. You may also need to attend follow-up appointments with your local doctor to monitor your condition. During this appointment, make sure you tell your doctor about any symptoms you experience.

    What's the Success Rate of Prostate Cancer Treatment Procedures in South Africa?

    The 5-year survival rate is nearly 100%, but if the prostate cancer has spread to other parts of the body, the survival rate is significantly reduced to 30%. These treatments carry side effects and risks of complications, such as infection, bleeding, fatigue, hair loss, feeling sick, diarrhea, lower sex drive, erectile dysfunction, bowel problems, and inability to get a woman pregnant.

    Are there Alternatives to Prostate Cancer Treatment Procedures in South Africa?

    If you prefer not to undergo any of the treatments mentioned above because of the side effects or your personal reasons, you can discuss with your doctor what your alternatives are. For early prostate cancer, you may undergo cryotherapy or cryosurgery. If your condition does not cause any symptoms, your doctor may suggest active surveillance.

    What Should You Expect Before and After the Procedure

    Prostate cancer can be life-threatening, spread to other organs, and cause painful symptoms. After treatment, any symptoms should be relieved and the risk of your cancer spreading to other parts of your body will be greatly reduced. Although there is no sign of cancer in your body anymore, your doctor will not say ‘cured,’ instead, they may say you are in remission.

    Whilst the information presented here has been accurately sourced and verified by a medical professional for its accuracy, it is still advised to consult with your doctor before pursuing a medical treatment at one of the listed medical providers. This content was last updated on 28/11/2020.
