German Prostate Cancer Center

At the GMI Prostate Cancer Center, a team of internationally acclaimed physicians guide each prostate cancer patient through their diagnostic work-up to their treatment and post-treatment care.

Members of our team are leaders in prostate cancer research and care. Therefore, they participate in several international prostate cancer guideline committees and are opinion leaders in the diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer. at the GMI Prostate Cancer Center our patients can meet with several specialists during a single visit.

Our Services

At German Prostate Cancer Center apply the most modern diagnostic procedures to ensure an optimal diagnostic work-up. For example, the only positron-emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) scanner available in the region is at the GMI Prostate Cancer Center. It is frequently used to accurately assess the spread of the disease.

The GMI Prostate Cancer Center offers a variety of treatment options. These include high-precision radiation therapy, minimally invasive surgery, access to clinical trials, hormone therapy, and chemotherapy. Specifically in the field of high-precision radiotherapy, the GMI team is a pioneer and one of the leading centers in Europe. A novel treatment option for patients with more advanced stages of the disease is the so called PSMA radioligand therapy. To determine the best possible cancer treatment and care plan, our multidisciplinary team of experts meet weekly at the GMI urologic malignancies tumor board.

Symptoms & Diagnosis

Diagnosing prostate cancer involves a series of steps aimed at detecting the presence and assessing the extent of cancer. Initial screening often begins with a Prostate-Specific Antigen (PSA) test, which measures the level of PSA in the blood. Elevated levels can indicate cancer or other prostate issues. A Digital Rectal Exam (DRE) may also be conducted, allowing the doctor to feel for abnormalities in the prostate’s size, shape, or texture.

If these tests indicate potential concerns, further diagnostic procedures like Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and a prostate biopsy can be employed. An MRI provides detailed images of the prostate and surrounding tissues, aiding in the accurate planning of a biopsy or surgery. The biopsy, involving the collection of tissue samples from the prostate, is the definitive method for diagnosing prostate cancer, with the samples examined microscopically for cancer cells.

Throughout this process, the goal is to accurately identify the presence of cancer, determine its aggressiveness, and inform treatment decisions. Early detection and diagnosis are key in managing prostate cancer effectively, underscoring the importance of regular screenings for those at increased risk.
