Common Question

Should I get surgery or radiation or simply watch my prostate cancer?

That is the biggest question patients face and there is no simple answer.  Multidisciplinary care means that you speak with a surgeon (a urologist) and a radiation oncologist who specializes in prostate cancer treatment.  Both treatment options are highly effective for most men, but you should speak with a specialist to learn more about the best options for your prostate disease.  The good news is that most prostate cancers are highly curable and some can be safely monitored.  Most patients weigh the risks of side effects with the likely benefits of treatment.
