The Center has a rich history of technical innovations which have transformed the management of these cancers including open partial nephrectomy, laparoscopic/robotic partial nephrectomy, radical nephrectomy and venous thrombectomy for advanced kidney cancer, open/robotic radical prostatectomy and robotic radical cystectomy.
Christie Clinic has also been at the forefront of pioneering less-invasive treatment alternatives (where appropriate) for urologic cancers such as active surveillance, cryotherapy, and focal therapy for localized prostate cancer and percutaneous ablative procedures for small renal masses.
About one in seven men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer at some point in their lives, according to the American Cancer Society. However, the simple act of eating the right foods can improve your chances of becoming a prostate cancer survivor.
Some foods fuel disease. Experts — backed by research — believe some foods can impact prostate cancer growth. Since sugary foods, red meat and dairy products are believed to provide fuel to cancer cells, prostate cancer patients are encouraged to modify their diet by:
Limiting red meat and eating it no more than two or three times per month.
Eating lots of fruits and vegetables.
Significantly limiting dairy and sugary foods.
Vitamins and supplements also play a role in prostate cancer
Including supplements and vitamins in your diet can also be beneficial.
Increase consumption of omega-3 fatty acids. Foods like salmon, chia seeds, sardines and flaxseeds are rich in omega-3s.
Decrease intake of omega-6 fatty acids. Foods like hamburgers, hot dogs, french fries and chicken wings are high in omega-6s.
Vitamin D also has shown to play a role in prostate cancer.
