Prostate Cancer Treatment Information for Men From Orlando, FL
Moffitt Cancer Center provides a full spectrum of prostate cancer treatment and supportive care to men from Orlando, Florida, and throughout the country at our state-of-the-art location in Tampa. Our Urologic Oncology Program features physicians from a number of specialties – including medical oncology, radiation oncology, pathology and urology – who focus exclusively on cancers of the urological system. And, as a high-volume cancer center, Moffitt features specialists who have a unique level of experience treating uncommon and complex prostate malignancies. Thanks in part to the remarkable expertise of our physicians and their multispecialty approach to prostate cancer treatment, Moffitt is able to achieve more positive outcomes and an improved quality of life for our patients.
Men in Moffitt’s prostate cancer program receive individualized treatment plans based on their age, overall health and specific type of malignancy. In cases where the cancer is in an early stage and has not spread, a physician may suggest an "active surveillance" approach, where therapy is delayed until the cancer begins to metastasize or cause symptoms in an effort to avoid side effects from unnecessary treatment.
- Traditional or robotic-assisted surgery to remove tumors, affected tissues or nearby lymph nodes.
- Chemotherapy and radiation therapy to destroy cancer cells with medicines or high-energy X-rays.
- Biological therapy to promote the body’s natural abilities to fight off cancer and heal itself.
- Bisphosphonate therapy to help prevent cancer from spreading to nearby bones.
Moffitt also leads several trailblazing research initiatives and clinical trials to optimize prostate cancer treatment and detection.
