Finding the Best Prostate Cancer Treatment Option

Treatment for prostate cancer has traditionally been surgery, where the prostate is removed in whole or in part, and radiotherapy, where radioactive emissions are used to burn cancerous cells away. For decades these were the only effective procedures that could eliminate prostate cancer. Newer treatments have arisen in the past decade thanks to research carried out around the world. Most of them involve some surgical procedure to perform even where no removal of tissue is required.
