Prostate Cancer

Prostate cancer can also result in an enlarged prostate. BPH is a much more common cause of an enlarged prostate, but, because the symptoms of prostate cancer and BPH can be identical, there is no way to safely determine which is causing a man’s urinary symptoms. And so all patients are investigated for both conditions.

Treatment for Prostate Cancer

Depending on the situation, the treatment options for men with prostate cancer might include:

  • Expectant management (watchful waiting) or active surveillance
  • Surgery
  • Radiation therapy
  • Cryosurgery (cryotherapy)
  • Hormone therapy
  • Chemotherapy
  • Vaccine treatment
  • Bone-directed treatment
