Prostate Cancer Care

Prostate cancer is common in men older than 65. It usually grows slowly and can take years to grow large enough to cause any problems. As with other cancers, treatment for prostate cancer works best when the cancer is found early.

You and your doctor may decide to treat your cancer. Or if you have cancer that is low-risk and hasn't spread (early stage), you may be able to wait and watch with active surveillance to see what happens. During active surveillance, you’ll have regular checkups with your doctor to see if your cancer has changed.

The urologist at St. Luke’s can help diagnose your prostate cancer and develop a treatment plan that works for you. Prostate cancer treatment options include radiation, chemotherapy, and hormone therapy, as well as robotic and open prostatectomy.
