Reliable Prostate Treatments at Odessa Regional Medical Center
Prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among men in the United States and the second leading cause of cancer death in men, next to lung cancer. As you get older, the risk of developing this cancer steadily increases. By age 75, half to three-fourths of all men show some cancerous signs in their prostate glands.
Because prostate cancer is slow growing, many cases will pose no serious threat to health. But others will require active treatment.
If a screening indicates that you may have prostate cancer, here’s the good news: this form of cancer is highly treatable, and you have a number of options available.
- Watchful waiting
- Hormonal therapy (androgen ablation)
- Radiation therapy
- Cryotherapy and surgery
