PROSTATE CANCER - TREATMENT OPTIONS

 

Many effective treatments for prostate cancer exist today. With early detection, many patients can be cured. The most appropriate treatment for you will depend on factors such as your age, health, lifestyle and the characteristics of your cancer. Your treatment options include:

 

Watchful Waiting (Active Surveillance) - men with slow growing, early stage cancers or those with serious health problems or advanced age may be advised to monitor the cancer rather than actively treating it. Many men will "outlive" their prostate cancer.

Surgery - a surgical procedure called a radical prostatectomy removes the cancerous prostate gland. The highly skilled surgeons of Urology Health Specialists use the latest techniques to remove cancerous tissue while minimizing side effects. These techniques include the da Vinci robotic prostatectomy, a state-of-the-art robotic-assisted laparoscopic removal of the prostate.

Radiation Therapy - our new PROSTATE CANCER CENTER offers state-of-the-art Image-Guided Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IG-IMRT) in a luxurious, comfortable setting. This therapy offers highly targeted radiation to maximize tumor shrinkage while minimizing damage to surrounding tissues.

Hormone Therapy - in some cases, your physician will inject a medicine called LHRH to block the release of testosterone, the male hormone that fuels the growth of prostate cancer.

 

Brachytherapy - tiny radioactive "seeds" are placed into the prostate to release radiation over the course of several months, providing targeted treatment to the cancer.

 

Cryotherapy - in an outpatient procedure, a very thin needle is inserted into the prostate to freeze and destroy the cancer cells it contains. It can be used as primary therapy or as an alternative if other treatment is not successful.

 

Chemotherapy - chemotherapy is sometimes recommended for men who have progressive prostate cancer or cancer that is not responding to other therapy.
