Prostate Cancer Treatment

Your treatment options will depend on several things, including your age, your overall health, your PSA level, the stage and grade of your cancer, and the chances that the cancer is or may become life-threatening.

Most of the time, prostate cancer grows very slowly, so you will have time to talk with your Roswell Park team about all your treatment choices. Among other considerations, you’ll want to think about cure rates, side effects and costs.

Members of Roswell Park’s multidisciplinary Prostate team — pathologists, radiologists, surgical oncologists, radiation oncologists, medical oncologists, and other experts — will get together to review your case in detail, ensuring that every possible approach is considered carefully.
