Prostate Cancer Home > Prostrate Cancer Treatment

Were you looking for information about Prostate Cancer Treatment? Prostrate cancer treatment is a common misspelling of prostate cancer treatment.
Treatment for prostate cancer typically consists of either local or systemic therapy. Local therapy is aimed at treating the cancer directly in the prostate; examples include surgery and radiation therapy. Systemic therapy affects the whole body in an attempt to combat the cancer -- for example, hormone therapy. Some people combine these traditional treatments with alternative options, such as yoga, medication, and supplements.
While there are obvious benefits with prostate cancer treatment, there are also serious risks. Therefore, before starting treatment, you might want a second opinion about your diagnosis and treatment plan.
