Prostate Cancer Treatment

  1. Angiogenesis Inhibitors

    Sometimes called antiangiogenic therapy, this treatment may prevent the growth of cancer by blocking the formation of new blood vessels.

  2. Anxiety: Progressive Muscle Relaxation and Guided Imagery
  3. Chemotherapy For Prostate Cancer

    Chemotherapy may be used when the cancer has spread outside of the prostate gland, or it may be used in combination with other therapies.

  4. Clinical Trials For Prostate Cancer

    Several clinical trials to evaluate prostate cancer have been completed or are currently underway.

  5. Expectant Therapy

    Expectant therapy is to "watch and wait" while carefully observing and monitoring the prostate cancer.

  6. Herbal Remedies For Prostate Cancer

    Talk with your health care provider before using any type of dietary or herbal supplements in the treatment or prevention of prostate cancer.

  7. Hormone Therapy For Prostate Cancer

    The goal of hormone therapy is to lower the level of male hormones in the body, particularly testosterone.

  8. Radiation Therapy

    Radiation is often used to treat prostate cancer that is still confined to the prostate gland, or has spread only to nearby tissue.

  9. Robotic Prostatectomy

    Your prostate can be removed several ways. One way is for the surgeon to make several smaller cuts and removing the prostate using a tiny camera and surgical tools. This is called a laparoscopic prostatectomy. When a surgeon uses a robot during the procedure, it's known as a robotic prostatectomy.

  10. Surgery for Prostate Cancer

    Long-term, serious side effects of prostate surgery are somewhat less common now than in the past, as new surgical methods continue to be introduced.
