Prostate cancer is the one of the most common cancers in men in the United States. Approximately one in six men will develop prostate cancer according to the American Cancer Society. Prostate cancer tends to progress much more slowly than most other cancers and is generally associated with a good prognosis. Prostate cancer that has grown enough to bring attention to itself in the form of a lump or an elevated PSA has likely been present for at least a couple of years.

Surgery, radiation and hormone therapy are often the mainstays of treating prostate cancer. Some patients may derive the most benefit from a combination of treatment strategies. As such, our team of radiation oncologists, medical oncologists, and urologists will work with our patients to determine an optimal treatment strategy.
