Prostate Cancer Clinic at Sir H. N. Reliance Foundation Hospital and Research Centre is a first-of-its-kind specialty clinic in Mumbai. It is dedicated for diagnosing and managing prostate related diseases, predominantly Prostate Cancer.
After the age of 60, more than 50% men get affected with prostate related issues. Therefore, an annual prostate gland health evaluation is necessary in men of 50 years and above. Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer in Men and if diagnosed early, is completely curable. Hence, early diagnosis is immensely important.
In our prostate cancer clinic, the specialist urologist will carry out a detailed consultation and examination, which also includes physical examination of the prostate. The doctor will also ask you to get a urine, blood and imaging study to obtain more information. If prostate cancer is suspected, the doctor will also request you to undergo a small procedure of obtaining prostate (tissue) biopsy.
Cancer treatment per se does not mean either surgery or chemotherapy. We at Sir H. N. Reliance Foundation Hospital and Research Centre are committed to take a comprehensive treatment approach, which includes Prevention, Education, Diagnosis, Treatment and Rehabilitation. Being a multi-specialty tertiary care institute, all the latest treatment facilities are available under one roof.
Complex cancer cases are treated only after seeking an approval from the Multidisciplinary Tumor Board (MDT) meeting. The MDT board includes cancer surgeons, radiation oncologist, medical oncologist, pathologist and radiologists. The Prostate cancer clinic’s renowned experts work together as a multi-professional team to ensure that patients receive innovative but evidence-based care that is never biased by a single specialist's view.
The cancer department of our hospital has affiliations to the World’s leading cancer and urological institutes- M D Anderson Cancer Centre and University of Southern California, USA respectively. Complex cancer cases are discussed with World leading surgeons from the aforementioned institutes.
Our hospital possesses state-of-the-art technology, which is at par to the reputed International Cancer Institutes. We are proud to mention that one of the first Robotic Assisted Radical Prostatectomy (RARP) in South Mumbai was performed at the Sir H. N. Reliance Foundation Hospital and Research Centre.
Our doctors would be more than happy to assist and guide you on any prostate related issue.
