At the initial consultation patients will be taken through a range of tests by the Consultant Urologist including:
- Prostate-Specific Antigen (PSA) blood test
- Prostate MRI +/- prostate biopsy
Should the patient receive a positive diagnosis, they are then provided with information on Uro-Oncological treatment options such as:
- Active surveillance
- Radical radiotherapy
- Hormone therapy and/or chemotherapy depending on the clinical findings
The hospital has a dedicated Day Chemotherapy Unit, with 10 individual patient rooms.
Chemotherapy treatment is delivered by a team of educated and experienced specialist nurses who provide 24/7 support during therapy.
Specialist Private Nursing
All patients attending the Glasgow Prostate Cancer Centre will benefit from dedicated specialist nursing care. Sister Dawn Stewart provides individual nursing support to the consultants, patients and their families during their attendance at the outpatient clinics.
By providing key information and co-ordinating treatment plans she also acts as the main liaison between other hospital departments such as Pharmacy, Radiology and the Laboratories, supporting the timely delivery of results. Sister Stewart is a key member of the hospital cancer care team and can liaise with members of the inpatient and day nursing team should investigations or treatment be required.
