How to treat prostate cancer
Providence Cancer Institute offers a wide range of treatment options for patients with prostate cancer, including different types of radiation therapy and surgery. Your doctor also may recommend “watchful waiting,” which means you visit the doctor regularly to monitor your prostate cancer and see if you need treatment. Please discuss these options with your doctor to determine what will work best for you.
