The prospect is good that 2012 presidential nominee and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney will fully recover from prostate cancer, according to one medical expert. Dr. David Samadi, the renowned urologist and cancer specialist, believes that the prognosis is good because Romney chose surgery as his treatment option.
In a recent essay, Dr. Samadi noted that Romney was only one of the more than 160,000 American men diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2017. Men who receive this diagnosis have to decide whether to deal with the problem through surgery or with radiation treatment. However, Dr. Samadi suggests that they thoroughly discuss the situation with their doctors before deciding which method is best for them.
In the event that the cancer has not spread beyond the prostate gland itself, Dr. Samadi highly recommends the surgical option. Men who undergo surgery at this point in the disease generally have higher rates of recovery than those given radiation therapy. He in fact noted that men who undergo radiation treatment are more likely to die sooner and also have twice the cancer death rate of those who have the cancer surgically removed. Additionally, the exposure to radiation can itself create the risk of developing a secondary cancer. In the event of a recurrence of the disease, the cancer is extremely difficult to remove through surgery after the patient has previously undergone radiation therapy.
Dr. Samadi noted that the survival rate is nearly 100 percent in men who have chosen the surgical option to treat localized prostate cancer. However, in cases where men were given radiation therapy and the cancer then spread outside of the gland, the five-year survival rate dropped to less than 30 percent. Approximately six in 10 men who are diagnosed with prostate cancer are at least 65 years of age. Romney was 70 when diagnosed.
Originally from Iran, Dr. David Samadi received his medical degree from the Stony Brook School of Medicine. After completing an oncology fellowship at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, he received training in robotic surgery in France. He first practiced medicine at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital and, in 2013, transferred to another New York facility, Lenox Hill Hospital, where he later became the chairman of the urology department and chief of radiation therapy.
Initially appearing on television as a guest, Dr. David Samadi served as the co-host of a program that ran for five years on the Fox News network. He is also known for his many written articles on cancer and related health issues.
