Prostate Cancer Treatment
Current treatment options vary, depending on the stage of the cancer and other medical conditions of the individual.
- Treatments include surgery, radiation or hormone therapy. Sometimes treatments are combined.
- Some prostate cancers grow very slowly and do not require immediate treatment. In these cases, men and their doctors may decide on “active surveillance” with regular follow-ups, usually every three to six months. This option should be open to reassessment, as a man’s condition or concerns may change.
Researchers are working to improve current treatment methods and develop new ones.
