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. 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.

  3. Clinical Trials For Prostate Cancer

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

  4. Does Ageism Exist in Cancer Care?

    Older adults are less likely to be screened for cancer in the first place. And if they are diagnosed with cancer, it's less likely that their doctors will recommend treatment to cure the cancer.

  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.
