Prostate cancer

Prostate cancer

Treatment of prostate cancer varies depending on the stage of the cancer (whether it has spread and how much it has spread) and may include surgical removal, radiation, hormonal manipulation, chemotherapy, or a combination of these treatments. Some patients with early, low-grade prostate cancers may be monitored closely without receiving therapy.
