Is the latest treatment on prostate cancer the best alternative? It just may not be the best way to go!
Announcements regarding the latest treatments on prostate cancer are common in the medical world, which is mainly due to an uncertainty of which drugs and treatments are actually beneficial when dealing with the cancer.
In fact, there is much more evidence that supports ‘watchful waiting’, improving your lifestyle and overhauling your diet as the better option.
When considering life expectancy for a person who has prostate cancer, there is no difference between undergoing surgery or taking drugs and simply improving your habits.
However, it is important to know what the latest treatments on prostate cancer are so here is a rundown of them with benefits and risks/side effects:
Cabazitaxel is a type of taxane chemotherapy drug that is also known as Jevtana. It is used in treatment for patients with advanced prostate cancer who haven’t responded to hormone treatment and docetaxel chemotherapy. It works by stopping cancer cells from dividing into two new cells, thereby blocking the growth of the cancer.
Cabazitaxel Side Effects
There are many side effects associated with this drug, some of which can be life threatening such as:
Other common side effects associated with Cabazitaxel include:
The list of side effects is inexhaustible and people may suffer other symptoms in a mild or severe capacity.
Enzalutamide, also known as Xtandi, is a hormone therapy treatment used for men who have already had the chemotherapy drug docetaxel and have had hormone treatment that is no longer working. The drug works by blocking male hormones from signaling the cancer cells to grow, therefore stopping or shrinking the cells for a period of time.
Enzalutamide Side Effects
Enzalutamide has similar side effects to the ones listed above for Cabazitaxel as well as a couple of added side effects including:
Abiraterone is one of the latest treatments on prostate cancer and works in a very similar way to Enzalutamide. The drug blocks an enzyme called cytochrome P17 which causes the testes and other tissues in the body from making testosterone. By doing this the prostate cancer grows slower or shrinks.
Abiraterone Side Effects
The side effects are the same as with Enzalutamide, including the loss of fertility.

Of course your doctor will probably do both prostate cancer surgery combined with toxic drug treatments in an attempt to "kill" the cancer everywhere.
There are real risks of damage to your prostate erection nerves when undergoing prostate surgeries called a prostatectomy. If damage happens then both erectile difficulties and incontinence may result.
They can never be found at fault for these standard medical treatments as it is what the medical system is authorized to do.
My viewpoint is different. The treatments are most often worse than doing nothing.
I advocate doing something very radical: change what caused the prostate cancer in the first place.
These latest treatment on prostate cancer offers risks that far outweigh the benefits and do not increase life expectancy. Therefore following the advice in my book: Healthy Prostate:The Extensive Guide to Heal and Prevent Prostate Problems can offer a much more natural and painless way of dealing with prostate cancer.
