Prostate Cancer

The most common form of cancer in American men, prostate cancer can also be successfully treated if it’s detected before it begins to spread. It typically affects men over 65, but all men over 50 should be screened each year. African American men are at a greater risk than men of other races.

Symptoms of prostate cancer include:
• Increased frequency of urination, especially at night
• Difficulty urinating or the inability to urinate
• A weak or intermittent flow
• Painful or burning urination
• Painful ejaculation
• Blood in semen or urine
• Back, hip, or extremity pain

Treatments for prostrate cancer vary, and each patient’s treatment is selected for his specific case. Some possible treatments include:
• Prostrate Ultrasound and Biopsy
• Interstitial Brachytherapy (Seed Implantation)
• Radiation Therapy
• Chemotherapy
• Hormone Therapy
• Cryosurgery
• Prostate Surgery
• Radical Retropubic Prostatectomy
