Prostate Cancer

Male patient with doctor We are committed to providing resources that help prevent, detect, and treat prostate cancer. If you have been diagnosed with prostate cancer, our care team will provide you with a treatment plan specific to your medical needs.

Diagnosis

We provide advanced technology to aid in the early diagnosis of prostate cancer including:

Prostate Ultrasound - Also known as a transrectal ultrasound, this provides images of the prostate gland and surrounding tissue while allowing your doctor to biopsy the prostate if necessary.

Bone Scan/X-Ray - A bone scan can aid in detecting whether or not prostate cancer has spread to other sites in the body.

We also utilize CT scans, MRI, and PET-CT imaging to allow for our doctors to diagnose diseases like prostate cancer more quickly and to determine which stage the cancer is in.

Treatment Options

Your care team will work with you to develop a treatment plan specific to your medical needs. We offer a wide range of therapies including medical oncology, radiation therapy and surgical options specific to prostate cancer.
