for Prostate Cancer
There is a fear in choosing which treatment
is best for you and a misconception about one’s options. Depending
on the stage of the cancer, the following are some of the options:
Surgery to remove the prostate.
radiation: beamed at the tumors from outside the body.
implanting permanent radioactive “seeds” in the prostate.
hormone therapy to slow the cancer growth by curbing testosterone.
Freezing cancer cells with liquid nitrogen.
Monitoring the cancer without immediate medical treatment may
depend on age and fitness of the patient.
