At the John Wayne Cancer Institute, we offer some of the most advanced treatment for prostate cancer. Our team includes a world-renowned surgeon who pioneered robotic-assisted surgery for prostate cancer.
You may receive more than one type of treatment, depending on several factors, including the grade of the tumor, where it is located and whether it has spread to other parts of your body. Before we set up a specific treatment plan for your prostate cancer, we will take the following into account:
- Your age, overall health and medical history
- The extent of the disease
- Your tolerance of specific medicines, procedures or therapies
- Expectations for the course of the disease
- Your opinion or preference
Your urologic oncologist may suggest active surveillance if your prostate cancer is in an early stage and growing slowly. Instead of immediate treatment, your doctor will check you regularly and perform tests to monitor your prostate cancer.
Our team will discuss the options available so that you can make the best treatment decision.
