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 and radiation therapy to destroy cancer cells and targeted hormone and biological therapies to impede cancer growth.
