September is the time to acknowledge men suffering with prostate cancer. Cancer of the prostate occurs when cells begin to form in the prostate gland. It is a type of cancer where it can spread throughout the body as well, and it occurs mostly in men ages 65 or over. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is used to manage radiation induced proctitis and cystitis. Patients who get diagnosed with prostate cancer will undergo radiotherapy of the pelvic area. Complications can arise after treatment. This is where hyperbaric oxygen therapy comes in play, and the staff at Advanced Hyperbaric Recovery INC is available to answer any questions you may have.

5-15% of patients after radiation therapy may have complications such as cystitis. Cystitis includes symptoms such as hematuria, incontinence, and increased urinary frequency. Evidence is growing for pure oxygen therapy from medical grade pressure chambers for men with prostate cancer. Every 1 in 8 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime, and it is imperative that men know the treatments available in the medical community. HBOT improves the negative effects from cancer treatment and decreases the likelihood of mortality.

Advanced Hyperbaric Recovery INC has staff that is highly trained at working with patients who have suffered from radiation effects from their cancer treatment. Oxygen therapy is even approved by the FDA and can be paid for by insurance! Damaged cells need oxygen to replicate, and breathing 100% pure oxygen reduces pain, and heals the damaged tissue even around the affected site. “HBOT has gained great clinical recognition over the decade,” according to www.urotoday.com. More patients need to know about this wonderful healing method post surgery. HBOT has been tested to decrease the growth rate of cancer cells, and “increase sensitivity to anti-cancer agents” according to www.ncbi.gov.

There have been studies on HBOT and cancer to see what would happen to a cancer cell when exposed to 100% oxygen, like in the pressure chambers of Advanced Hyperbaric Recovery INC. Not only does hyperbaric therapy have no effect on increasing the cancer cells, it is being discovered that HBOT can deliver oxygen safely not only to the cancer, but to the entire body. Radiation therapy and surgical cancer treatments take care of the cancer, but that leaves the body with scar tissue that needs to be healed. HBOT takes care of the complications from treatment in a safe manner with little to no side effects.

Oxygen therapy from medical grade chambers is the only way this can be done. Cheaper oxygen therapy chambers will not be as effective as 100% oxygen. There are different chambers for different applications of oxygen therapy. Choose the correct one for your condition. Speak to your medical team to see if your treatments should include HBOT with 100% oxygen! Contact the team at Advanced Hyperbaric Recovery INC and we will work with your doctors in order to speed up your recovery, and keep you in remission from your cancer.
