Genitourinary (Prostate) Cancers

Cancer of the prostate, a gland in the male reproductive system, is the most common type of cancer in men. Prostate cancer ranges in aggressiveness from slow growing, potentially needing minimal or no treatment, to aggressive forms that can spread quickly. Prostate cancer that is detected early has a better chance of successful treatment. For our prostate cancer patients, we focus not only on the best possible treatment options, but also consider the questions you may have about how it will affect your overall quality of life.
