Dr. David Samadi - What Is A PSA Test?  Why Should You Be Screened?

The PSA test is a blood test measures the amount of prostate-specific antigen (PSA) in your blood. PSA is a protein produced by both cancerous and noncancerous tissue in the prostate. The test can detect high levels of PSA that may indicate the presence of prostate cancer. However, many other conditions, such as an enlarged prostate or prostatitis, can also increase PSA levels. Therefore, determining what a high PSA score means can be complicated. Professional organizations vary in their recommendations about who should — and who shouldn't — get a PSA screening test. Discussing with your doctor the benefits of the PSA test can help you make an informed decision. Deciding on getting a PSA test done to potentially identify prostate cancer in it’s earliest stages can help you greatly in treating the disease more effectively. In this video by world renown surgeon Dr. David Samadi, you will learn about the importance of getting a PSA test, and how you can save your loved one by helping them to get screened today!

Dr. David Samadi - Prevent Prostate Cancer With Prostate Friendly Food

Dr. David Samadi - Prevent Prostate Cancer With Prostate Friendly Food

According to Dr. David Samadi, millions of men are taking multivitamins & prostate health supplements daily. However, natural food, fruits & vegetables is still the best available option. In this video Dr. Samadi explores the top food for prostate cancer prevention. • Tomatoes Lycopene, a powerful antioxidant found in tomatoes, may be beneficial in the prevention of prostate cancer and reducing tumor growth among men with prostate cancer. Studies have found that men who ate a lot of raw tomato and cooked tomato products were less likely to develop prostate cancer compared with men who rarely ate such foods. • Broccoli Several studies have demonstrated a lower chance of developing prostate cancer among men who eat large amounts of broccoli or other cruciferous vegetables. Could be due to one of the phytochemicals found in these vegetables, called sulforaphane, selectively targets and kills cancer cells while leaving normal prostate cells healthy and unaffected.Green tea • Green Tea Components of green tea such as catechin, EGCG and epicatechin are all being studied for their effects on health. There is some evidence to support that these polyphenolic compounds may prevent the development of prostate cancer. • Soybean Legumes such as beans, peanuts and lentils all contain biologically active plant compounds known as phytoestrogens. Isoflavones, a phytoestrogen, may contain cancer-fighting properties, which suppress tumor growth in prostate cancer cells. • Pomegranate Much like red wine or green tea, pomegranate is a rich source of antioxidants. In a small study investigators found that drinking 8oz of pomegranate juice delayed the rise in PSA levels and increased the doubling time from 15 months to 54 months. Compounds in pomegranate fruit may exclusively target the prostate cancer cells and destroy them. • Salmon Polyunsaturated fats, like omega-3s and omega-6s, are essential fatty acids found exclusively in the diet and not synthesized by the body. Having a balance of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids may help prevent the development and progression of prostate cancer. Unfortunately, the traditional Western diet has lot of omega-6 fatty acids, but minimal omega-3s. In a Swedish study which followed men for over 30 years, researchers reported that those men who ate no fish were two to three times more likely to develop prostate cancer than men who consumed large amounts of fish in their diet. To increase your omega-3 intake, try eating fatty fish found in cold waters such as salmon, herring, mackerel, sardines or trout. _________________________________________________________________ Dr. David Samadi is the Chairman of Urology & Robotics Surgery at Lenox Hill Hospital.

When Should Men See A Urologist

When Should Men See A Urologist

When Should Men See A Urologist Men go to their primary care physician for common health issues, their dentist for their teeth and an optometrist for eye checkups. But who should they see for male urinary or sexual issues? This is when the best type of doctor to treat such conditions is a urologist. A urologist is a doctor specializing in the genitourinary tract – the kidneys, ureters, urethra, bladder, prostate gland, male reproductive organs and male fertility. Urologists also specialize in male and female sexual dysfunction and issues. Men will particularly benefit from seeing a urologist when certain symptoms arise that really need the attention from a doctor who sees these disorders all the time. Here are a few signs telling a man it is time to see a urologist: Erectile dysfunction – A urologist will investigate everything from checking into vascular health, hypertension, renal failure, obesity, and other factors affecting a man’s ability to achieve and maintain an erection. Testicular pain or mass – If a man is experiencing pain or feels a mass, firmness or nodules in his testicle or scrotum, it is time to make an appointment with a urologist. Even though testicular cancer is rare, it is not worth taking the chance of ignoring it. If caught early, testicular cancer is one of the most curable cancers a man can get. Hematuria – Hematuria whether visible or only seen under the microscope is never normal and could be a warning sign of bladder or kidney cancer. A urologist is qualified to treat whatever the condition causing blood to appear in the urine might be from. Enlarged prostate – Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) or an enlarged prostate, has many symptoms from frequent or urgent need to urinate, weak urine stream or difficulty starting urination, increased frequency of nighttime urination, or inability to completely empty the bladder. Seeing a urologist will be a man’s best method of treating this common condition. Kidney stones Nephrolithiasis or kidney stones is a fairly common occurrence and if left untreated, it is more likely to come back. A urologist will do a thorough assessment and evaluation of a man’s symptoms and will have a comprehensive treatment plan to eliminate the problem. Elevated PSA – The PSA (prostate specific antigen) test is one of the most sensitive indicators of prostate cancer. If a man’s PSA is elevated, he needs to be evaluated and followed over time. Failing to do so could result in a man being “missed” in his PSA indicating a serious issue such as prostate cancer. Seeing a urologist when men are having certain health issues is imperative for receiving the very best care of the urinary system.

Myths & Facts About Prostate Cancer

Myths & Facts About Prostate Cancer

Prostate cancer is the second most diagnosed cancer and second most leading cause of cancer deaths in men living within the United States. Nearly nine percent of men that are diagnosed with prostate cancer will die from the disease. Discerning the truth from fiction is the first step towards understanding prostate cancer and increasing your chances of effectively fighting the disease. Myth: Prostate cancer only occurs in older men Fact: While it is true that older men are at a greater risk for developing prostate cancer about a third of reported cases occur before the age of 65. Variables which can increase your risk of developing prostate cancer range from your family history, and your ethnic background. Myth: All cases of prostate cancer will require treatment Fact: Only the more aggressive cases of prostate cancer will require immediate treatment. In many diagnosed cases if the cancer is found to be slow growing, your doctor may conduct treatment that is called “Active Surveillance”. Essentially what this means is that a doctor will monitor the cancer over a period of time and will only intercede medically if the cancer worsens. Myth: Prostate cancer & treatment will diminish your sexual activity Fact: The nerves that encompass the prostate and control the capacity for erections may be adversely affected during some prostate cancer treatments or surgeries. Age of the patient will play an important factor as to how quickly he will regain full erectile function. Most instances of post-treatment erectile dysfunction can be overseen by a urologist. Medications such as Viagra or Cialis may be prescribed by your doctor for treatment. Myth: High PSA score equals prostate cancer Fact: Increased PSA levels doesn’t necessarily mean that you have prostate cancer. Increased PSA levels can merely be indications of an enlarged or inflamed prostate gland. The high PSA level however can aid your doctor in determining if a biopsy will be needed in order to confirm whether or not you have the disease.

Dr. David Samadi Explains How To Detect and Treat Prostate Cancer

Dr. David Samadi Explains How To Detect and Treat Prostate Cancer

Dr. David Samadi explains how prostate cancer affects millions of men around the world, how prostate cancer can be detected, what men can do to watch out for it & what can be done to prevent it. Dr. David Samadi reiterates that in the USA 30,000 men die of prostate cancer each year. Prostate cancer is known as a silent killer as it’s an asymptomatic disease; men would not know that they have it unless they are tested. Dr. Samadi states that it’s extremely important that men visit their doctor and get a PSA test, know their PSA score & monitor the trend starting at the age of 40. If there’s a history of prostate cancer in the family, men should be extra cautious. A PSA test should not be the only indicator to follow in prostate cancer detection as a Prostate Specific Antigen Test (PSA test) is not a specific protein test for prostate cancer. It only indicates certain developments in the prostate. Prostate cancer is only detected in 30% of patients with a PSA score over 4. Sometimes an elevated PSA could be a result of an infection in the prostate gland which could be treated with an antibiotic. In conjunction with the PSA test, Urologists like Dr. David Samadi will also examine a man’s prostate. Factors such as the size of the prostate gland will be evaluated before a diagnosis is made. Approximately 15% of the time, a doctor will feel a nodule. Typically, a prostate will feel very soft and smooth similar to the palm of someone’s hand. If the prostate feels similar to a knuckle the doctor will know that there is a problem and further test will be performed. MRI, MRI fusion biopsy & urine based PCA3 genetic testing are some available options for patients. Dr. David Samadi states that ‘the one size fits all approach’ is incorrect when someone is diagnosed with prostate cancer. Surgery is his preferred choice of treatment as the prostate is removed and the only available treatment option with accurate staging. The PSA after surgery should be zero & will be undetectable. If prostate cancers recurs after surgery, a patient can consider radiation. However, if a patient gets radiation treatment options such as Cyberknife or seed implants first, surgery cannot be considered as a second line of defense. Post-surgery incontinence & impotence related to prostate cancer is predominantly in the hands of the surgeon. If surgery is performed by a high volume robotic surgeon like Dr. David Samadi at a center of excellence, patients should expect faster recover and post-surgery normality. The credibility and experience of the surgeon is of utmost importance, as what matters is not the robot, but the surgeon behind the robot. Dr. Samadi states that lives can be saved if prostate cancer is detected early & contained. _________________________________________________________________ Dr. David Samadi is the Chairman of Urology & Robotics Surgery at Lenox Hill Hospital.

Dr. David Samadi explains that PSA stands for ‘prostate specific antigen’ & not ‘Prostate Cancer Specific Antigen’ He stresses that it was inaccurate for the US task force to indicate that healthy men over the age of 50 should not get PSA tests as it doesn’t help with mortality. Things such as an enlarged prostate, inflammation of prostate & prostate cancer can elevate the PSA. Dr. David Samadi explain what risk stratification is & what a patient should do. He also stresses on the importance of having better trained surgeons, technology & experience of oncology in helping the patients. _________________________________________________________________ Dr. David Samadi is the Chairman of Urology & Robotics Surgery at Lenox Hill Hospital.
