Prostate Cancer Treatment

Every man with prostate cancer is different and each treatment has different side effects and benefits.  A treatment decision generally depends on the stage of your cancer and how far it has spread.  If it is only in your prostate or the area around it, your doctor will likely recommend that it be treated locally with surgery and/or radiation therapy.  If the cancer has metastasized, or spread to other parts of your body, you may also be treated with hormone therapy, chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy.
