Treatment Options for Prostate Cancer - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT:
You or someone you care about may have been diagnosed with prostate cancer. This video will help you understand some of the main treatment options available. Prostate cancer is a type of cancer that forms in a man's prostate gland. Most prostate tumors grow slowly, compared to other types of cancer. You and your doctor will decide your treatment based on several factors. These factors include the grade and stage of your cancer, your health and medical history, and your age. There may be other factors that are important to you and your family. The treatments for prostate cancer may include active surveillance, prostatectomy surgery, radiation therapy, hormone therapy, and immunotherapy. Active surveillance means frequent doctor visits to closely monitor any growth or changes in your prostate. During these visits, your doctor will feel your prostate by inserting a gloved finger into your rectum. This is called a digital rectal exam. In addition, a blood test will be done to check the level of a substance in your blood called PSA. Men with prostate cancer often have a higher PSA blood level. Sometimes, active surveillance means your doctor will take a biopsy of your prostate. During a biopsy, your doctor will remove prostate tissue samples through the rectum with a needle. You may need to have surgery, called prostatectomy to remove your prostate gland. Another treatment called radiation therapy, uses radiation to shrink tumors and kill cancer cells. In external beam radiation, a machine aims radiation from outside your body to the prostate. In contrast, internal radiation uses pieces of radioactive material placed within the tumor. Hormone therapy is another treatment for prostate cancer. It affects certain substances made by your body called hormones. Prostate cancer needs these hormones to grow. Hormone therapy drugs can prevent cancer growth in two ways. First, the drugs can block the action of the one or more hormones on your prostate. Second, the drugs can block or reduce the amount of hormones made by your body. Immuno-oncology, also known as immunotherapy, helps your immune system fight cancer. For example, one treatment uses certain immune cells taken from your body. These cells are grown in the lab and given a vaccine that makes them more active. Then the activated immune cells are returned to your body to help attack cancer cells. Your doctor may prescribe other treatments than the ones described here. Talk to your doctor if you have questions about your prescribed medication or have any side effects. Be sure to take your medications as directed by your doctor.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"You and your company are wonderful. Your service, turnaround time, quality and price were better than I could have asked for. Please add me to your long list of satisfied customers."

"It is with great enthusiasm that I recommend Medical Legal Art. We have used their services for three years and always found their professionalism, quality of work, and timely attention to detail to exceed our expectations. We recently settled two complicated catastrophic injury cases. One medical malpractice case involving a spinal abscess settled for 3.75 million and the other involving injuries related to a motor vehicle accident settled for 6.9 million. We consider the artwork provided by MLA to have been invaluable in helping us to successfully conclude these cases.

I highly recommend MLA to anyone seeking high quality, detailed medical legal artwork."

"I wanted to thank you for the terrific job you did illustrating my client's injuries. The case was settled at the pre-suit mediation, and I believe a good part of the success we had was due to the medical legal art you prepared.

Your work received the ultimate compliment at the conclusion of the mediation. The hospital risk manager took the exhibit with them at the conclusion of mediation, and will be using it to train nurses on how to prevent bed sores..."

"At 3 PM it hit me--I needed exhibits of a tracheostomy, a coronary artery bypass and a deep vein thrombosis--all in time for a for-trial video deposition the next day. The Doe Report had each exhibit on line. In addition, I ran across an exhibit I hadn't even thought of: reduced ejection fraction after a heart attack. Because this was a video deposition, I could use the e-mail version of the medical exhibit, print it on my color copier, and let the camera zoom in. For $400, less than one blow-up by one of The Doe Report's competitors, I got four first-rate exhibits in less than a day. The Doe Report saved me time and money."
