- Our Prostate Care Program
Our patient-centered prostate care program provides those who are at risk of, or have been diagnosed with prostate cancer, a personalized program based on the patient's individual needs. There are various levels of prostate cancer, some are slow growing and require close monitoring. Other types are more aggressive and require radiation, surgery, hormone therapy or chemotherapy. The treatment plan that is right for each patient is dependent on many factors including age, overall health, how fast the cancer is growing, and whether it has spread outside the prostate gland.
All men are at risk for prostate problems, although conditions vary by age and other factors. It is important to be aware of the risks and educated about treatment options.
Furthermore, it is critical that all men receive annual prostate screenings over the age of 50. Screening should begin earlier, at age 40, in those who have a higher risk of prostate cancer, such as African-American men or those with a family history of prostate cancer.
