Prostate Cancer

Overview

Prostate cancer is the most common non-skin malignancy in men, affecting one in six American men at some point in their lifetime. With early diagnosis, when the cancer is confined to the prostate itself, men usually have a range of treatment options, including active surveillance, surgical removal of the prostate, or radiation, hormonal, or chemotherapy. Only a patient and his physician can determine which treatments are most appropriate. This decision depends on a combination of factors, including the stage at which the disease is diagnosed and the patient’s age, general health, and personal preferences.
