The cancer centers and clinics in Germany are leaders on the global list when it comes to quality of cancer treatment. Prostate cancer treatment depends upon the type of disease and location of cancer. It can be either localized, locally advanced or advanced. The task of a doctor is to determine if the disease spread outside of the prostate or not, and thus to define the optimal method of prostate treatment. The advanced stage of the disease affects other parts of the body as well.
The person can choose the type of prostate therapy when discussing the condition with a doctor. Treatment should be performed under careful doctor’s supervision.
Much depends upon the type of treatment. It determines the efficacy of therapy in the future. The best result is when you do not need any medication any longer, though this does not happen frequently.
The doctor advises an active surveillance in the case of slow-growing prostate. When that happens, there are almost no changes in the organism and the disease does not progress. The doctor should constantly monitor the condition of the patient. Cancer disease therapy affects a person’s life dramatically and it is important to avoid possible side effects.
Radical prostatectomy is appointed when prostate gland should be removed chirurgically. This treatment as well as laparoscopic prostatectomy is suitable only when the person has cancer, which does not affect any other organs, but prostate.
Alternatively eternal beam radiotherapy can be applied to get rid of cancer. X-ray beams are applied to damage the cancer cells. It is done to prevent them from growing. There is no universal solution for cancer treatment. The doctor can appoint just external beam therapy or apply it after prostate cancer surgery. Combination of different methods can be used effectively to achieve the goal. The person looks how the body reacts to different procedures and chooses the ones that work for sure.
Cancer cells can be destroyed by temporary brachytherapy. The essence of medication is application of high dose rate radiation for a few minutes. The other term for it is high dose rate brachytherapy.
Different method is used in HIFU. HIFU is high intensity focused ultrasound. It destroys damaging cancer cells via heating. The method has not been explored in the long term yet. For this reason, this treatment is applied as a part of clinical trial.
Opposing to HIFU, cryotherapy belongs to cancer treatment that works by means of freezing and thawing. The goal of the method is to kill the cells of the disease in the prostate. Other terms for the disease is cryosurgery, cryotherapy. This treatment is innovative and requires additional research. It is available only in some medical centres at present.
Hormone therapy is an additional type of therapy that helps to relieve the condition of the patient. It is not able to cure cancer and applied for control only. Use it for management of symptoms.
Chemotherapy is one of the most wide-spread therapies applied nowadays. The patient takes anti-cancer drugs to destroy the cancer cells. This prostate treatment will not rid you of the disease, but this can be an effective way to delay the symptoms. Patients can prolong life considerably.
Apart from methods mentioned here, there are other treatments that do not let cancer spread. Some of them are under clinical trials now. Medical research is conducted to determine how to diagnose, prevent and treat the disease. Many people participate in research. As a result of it, one of the best cancer treatment can be found.

I faced the problem of BPH at an early age. This disease usually occurs after the age of 50, I experienced it at the age of 33. My hectic way of life is to blame, after all. Within the course of therapy, my adenoma was exposed to radio-frequencycurrents. There are references about these currents in competent sources in urology. I should say that the procedure is not very pleasant, but effective when it comes to conservative treatment.
A friend of mine, who is a couple of years older than me, was in correspondence with the clinic Friedrichshafen and he had absolute confidence that the green laser surgery will solve all his problems. As a result, he decided for the operation and everything went well. He was very satisfied with the clinic and highly recommends it to his friends.
The main thing is not to be afraid and to discuss all your burning questions with the specialists of the Friedrichshafen clinic in advance. Stories about impotence and infertility after the surgery are no more than just a myth.

I know that the treatment of BPH, which I decided for, only stops the growth of adenomas, but not guarantees the full recovery. That is why I began to think about surgery. At the same time, I searched through the internet in search of a competent clinic with a good reputation for the treatment of prostate. I also considered the medical treatment abroad. The Clinic of Friedrichshafen attracted my attention, because they have a very detailed website in English. I wrote a request to the clinic and attached all the medical information that I had available. On the same day I got a call from the hospital, they have a department dealing with foreign patients. The lady who called me, spoke perfect English, and explained to me all the important points, related to further treatment.
I was not very happy about the surgery, but I did not have the choice. After a conversation with the clinic, the doubts were dispersed. As a result, I am very pleased that I turned to this clinic. They met me at the airport and brought to the clinic. I got an accommodation at the division for international patients; however, it looked more like a good hotel. There was no feeling of staying at the clinic. The service and medical care were perfect, everyone was courteous and polite. After the first interview with the doctor fears all my fears were away. He convinced me that everything will go without risk or complications. And it was so. A few days later I was back at home. I am so happy that there are professionals who can work wonders in medicine. Thanks to all!

I had undergone prostatitis treatment at the Clinic of Friedrichshafen in summer, 2015. At that time, I was 37 years old, and had for several years been plagued with the problem.
I visited many doctors, but still suffered from the notorious symptoms. The worst thing was frequent and painful urination at night. I tried out-patient treatment in Moscow, but the effect was weak and short. I was diagnosed with chronic prostatitis after all and tried different medications, but the results were still not long-term.
During the few days at the hospital Friedrichshafen I have solved my problem with the help of appropriate medicines, which proved to be rerally good in my case. They have also discharged medicines for future use. For nearly a year I have been living without prostatitis. I feel fine. All the problems are behind. Many thanks to Dr. Fieseler and the team of the Department of Urology.

Hello, my name is Vladimir. I suffered from chronic bacterial prostatitis over the last 5 years. The repeated antibiotic courses were not effective and I was really in despair. Once I came across over the website of the Friedrichshafen clinic and want to visit it. I got in touch with the Department of Urology and they have requested my current medical reports. After paying the deposit in the amount of 5,000 Euro, they issued an invitation to the consultation and treatment in the clinic of Friedrichshafen. I really hoped to get rid of the problem or get a significant positive effect. At that time I have almost lost hope. BUT! Thank God I turned the urology clinic in Friedrichshafen. Now I have forgotten about the prostatitis and can enjoy my life. I am very grateful for your help!
