Chemotherapy for prostate cancer uses oral and injected anti-cancer drugs to treat cancer. It is typically given in cycles that last a few weeks followed by a rest period.
Cholecystectomy is surgical removal of the gallbladder. It is done to reduce pain and infection from repeated bouts with gallstones.
Circumcision is removal of the foreskin of the penis. It is done for both religious and health reasons.
Cystoscopy for Women
Cystoscopy is a procedure in which a flexible, lighted tube, called a cystoscope, is inserted into the urethra to visualize the inside of the bladder. It can also be used to irrigate, suction and biopsy the bladder.
Laparoscopy is a procedure that passes a thin, lighted tube through an incision into the abdomen to view internal organs. It can be used to locate cysts and infections, as well as procure tissue for biopsy.
Lithotripsy is a procedure in which shock waves are passed over the kidney area. These shock waves break up kidney stones so they may more easily be passed through the urinary system.
A radical prostatectomy is surgical removal of the prostate gland and any surrounding lymph nodes that have been affected by cancer.
Transurethral Resection of the Prostate
Transurethral Resection of the Prostate (TURP) is a procedure in which portions of an enlarged prostate are removed through the penis using a resectoscope, or a thin, lighted instrument.
A vasectomy is a procedure in which the tubes that carry sperm are closed or blocked.
