Prostate Cancer Treatment Options

Since you have been diagnosed with prostate cancer, there are several options available to you including:

  • Hormone therapy
  • Chemotherapy
  • Cryosurgery
  • Watchful waiting
  • Surgery
  • External beam radiation therapy (three-dimensional conformal radiation therapy or 3D-CRT or intensity modulated radiation therapy with daily image guidance (IMRT/IGRT)
  • Prostate brachytherapy

Your urologist may recommend that you meet with a radiation oncologist, a cancer doctor who specializes in treating this disease with radiation therapy. The radiation oncologist will discuss all of your treatment options and help you determine if intensity modulated radiation therapy with daily image guidance (IMRT/IGRT) is right for you.
