Professor Chris Eden is a surgeon and describes a technique called Reziuts Sparing Surgery.

This uses Da Vinci robotics and has proven, in some cases,to be less invasive than laparoscopic surgery. It may be helpful for those on active surveillance to consider when their treatment decision needs to be made. View video here
Urology Macmillan Team Presentation
Our speaker meeting on October 14 2021, the first for nearly two years, was attended by almost 20 members and wives. Dan and

Anna, our friendly Clinical Nurse Specialists from Macmillan, gave an excellent presentation. They described the services

provided for us and how they help the many men coming through the system, and reiterated that their team is the first point of call for getting information. They also spoke about current treatment options with their related side effects, and how to deal with them.

The point of most concern is that more men are being diagnosed with T3 and T4 cancers, due to delay in having a PSA test. This means that the cancer has begun to spread outside of the prostate and is more difficult to treat. Can I remind you once again to please make sure your male blood relatives have a PSA test, and tell your friends too?

One of our new members, who had no symptoms, was found to have a high PSA. He told several of his friends to get a test, and as a result one has been found to have a high PSA, and another man has been fortunate to be diagnosed early with a lower T2 staging, making his prostate more easily treatable.
