Prostate cancer is one of the most common cancers among men. At Guthrie, we offer a full complement of services for prostate cancer. Because there is a high correlation between family history and diagnosis, if you have a family history of prostate cancer we can provide genetic testing to help determine your risk for prostate cancer. However, often prostate cancer grows slowly and remains confined to the prostate gland, needing minimal, if any, treatment. We provide individualized treatment plans, taking into account your cancer type, stage and location when determining the right treatment option.
Our team of prostate cancer providers includes fellowship trained oncologists, Urology specialists and support services. We also offer access to over 75 clinical trials to provide you with the most up to date cancer care options. Our dedicated team uses the latest treatment technology, including treatment for late stage cancers.
At Guthrie our treatment for prostate cancer includes:
- Hormone therapy.
- Radio seed implantation.
- Radiation therapy.
- Robotic prostatectomy.
- Traditional open surgery.
