Treatment for prostate cancer

Not all prostate cancer patients need surgery, according to Physician Manuel Torres. He adds that screening tests are the best way to try to prevent a disease altogether.

In diagnosis, the doctor mentions the aggressiveness of prostate cancer is important, because that may change the therapeutic and treatment options. These could be completely medical or surgical.

When specifically talking about prostate cancer treatment, according to the specialist, this treatment must be managed completely by correct specialists (a proper urologist, a proper urologic team, and proper diagnostic workup). Just because the PSA (prostate specific antigen) is going up and the prostate size can change, it does not necessarily mean that men have prostate cancer.
