When it comes to prostate cancer treatment, the opinions of multiple physicians are better than one. That’s why Moffitt Cancer Center takes a multispecialty approach to treatment for our patients from Fort Myers, Florida, and throughout the country. Located in nearby Tampa, Moffitt is a global leader in the treatment of urologic cancers.
What does prostate cancer treatment involve?
There are several factors that may influence a man’s ideal course of treatment, such as his age, medical history and the stage of his prostate cancer. Generally speaking, treatment may involve surgery to remove tumors, chemotherapy, hormone therapy and radiation therapy to destroy cancer cells and targeted biological therapies and radiopharmaceuticals to impede cancer growth. There is also the option of clinical trials if applicable.
Prostate cancer treatment at Moffitt is far from one-size-fits-all. The specialists within our Urologic Oncology Program focus exclusively on urologic cancers and collaborate as a tumor board to develop individualized treatment plans for our patients. These specialists include:
- Medical oncologists
- Radiation oncologists
- Interventional radiologists
- And other experts
