What does prostate cancer treatment involve?
While early-stage prostate cancer might involve a "wait and see" approach, patients who require immediate prostate cancer treatment may begin with surgery to remove cancerous growths from the prostate. At Moffitt, our surgeons utilize robotic technology and muscle-sparing techniques to achieve optimal results while preserving healthy nerves and tissues.
Other therapies may be administered before or after surgery to help destroy cancer cells and prevent their growth. These include:
- Chemotherapy, which targets cancer cells that have spread to other areas of the body
- Radiation therapy, which utilizes radioactive beams to shrink tumors in a specific area
- Biological therapy, which leverages the healing abilities of the body’s immune system
- Hormone therapy, which limits the prostate’s ability to produce cancer-feeding hormones
Moffitt also spearheads an ambitious clinical trial program that gives our patients access to trailblazing prostate cancer treatments before they are made widely available. Thanks to our unrelenting research efforts, Moffitt has achieved designation as a Comprehensive Cancer Center from the National Cancer Institute.
