Prostate Cancer Treatment
At Fox Chase Cancer Center, our multidisciplinary medical team works closely to accurately diagnose your prostate cancer and help you understand your options so that you can make an informed decision about your treatment.
As a regional and national leader in cancer care, Fox Chase has a wealth of experience treating all types of prostate cancer.
Our skilled genitourinary oncology team meets regularly to review patient cases and map out a personalized treatment plan. We strive to treat your cancer in the least invasive way possible using innovative surgical techniques and combination therapies that give you the best chance of a successful outcome.
Our doctors are also actively involved in developing new therapies for treating prostate cancer. Through clinical trials, we are able to offer our patients access to promising treatments and experimental therapies that may not be available elsewhere. Ask your Fox Chase doctor if a clinical trial is right for you.
Your Treatment Options
Treatment for prostate cancer depends on the stage, type, and grade of your tumor; whether it has spread to other tissues; and your age, health history, and personal goals. Your personalized treatment plan will be created after consultations with multiple physicians within our multidisciplinary team and may include a combination of one or more of the following treatment options:
- Active surveillance
- Radiation therapy
- Systemic therapy
