Second Opinion

Second Opinion

KLINIK am RING - Cologne at Zülpicher Platz

Bestrahlen, operieren, Implantate einsetzen oder erst einmal abwarten – etwa 63. 000 Männer werden in Deutschland jedes Jahr mit der Diagnose Prostatakrebs konfrontiert und stehen vor der schwierigen Aufgabe die „richtige“ Behandlung zu wählen. Zur Therapie des Prostatakarzinoms gibt es heute mehrere Behandlungsmöglichkeiten mit gleichwertigen Heilungschancen. Umso wichtiger ist es, die Vor- und Nachteile der verschiedenen Therapieoptionen sorgfältig gegeneinander abzuwägen und auch die eigenen Lebensumstände bei der Therapieentscheidung zu berücksichtigen.

The association of the West German Prostate Center with prostate cancer specialists from the USA and Europe to form the "International Prostate Cancer Group" (IPG) aims to optimize the quality of prostate cancer treatment through scientific cooperation, information exchange and patient counseling.

Patients with prostate cancer from Germany and abroad have the opportunity to benefit from the medical knowledge of the experts and to obtain a competent and independent second opinion.

The second opinion shows the therapy options tailored to the individual clinical picture and explains the expected success and side effects of the individual treatment methods. The international and interdisciplinary competence of the team of experts ensures a neutral and objective result.

For the second opinion we need the following documents:

PSA value:

It is important that you report all available PSA values of the last months or years. The course of the PSA value over time provides significant additional information about the behavior of a prostate carcinoma

Biopsy findings:

A copy of the pathological (histological) evaluation of your prostate biopsies is absolutely necessary for the second opinion.

Imaging findings:

Written findings of any imaging that may have already been performed (transrectal ultrasound, bone scintigraphy, CT, MRI, PET-CT, or similar) should also be included.

Information on other diseases:

Written findings or your own information on other illnesses, operations and regular medication should also be enclosed.

Please do not send pictures, CD or DVD, but only the corresponding written findings.

IPSS sheet:

You can download the IPSS questionnaire here and please complete it and attach it to your documents.

Please send your complete documents by eMail to: or by mail to the West German Prostate Center.
