Prostate cancer is often the first indication that a person is going to need prostate surgery. Many people get a false diagnosis, and the cancer is found to be a small amount of cells that never grow past the skin and are removed. Other times, prostate cancer is found on X-rays, which is very different from what you see on an X-ray. As with any cancer, there are treatments available. Some treatments are recommended for the first stage of the cancer, while others may be needed as the cancer spreads. Some treatments include radiation therapy, chemotherapy, and surgery. If any of these options are not available, the surgeon will need to be prepared to deal with the extra surgery, radiation therapy, and radiation therapy alone. In order to make these more manageable, and to help prevent complications in the future, a medical doctor is usually recommended to provide more detailed guidelines. This guide is intended to give you an idea of what a treatment plan will look like at the beginning. This is not a complete list of treatments, but rather, it is an outline of the treatment that might be available. You should always ask your healthcare provider for more details about treatment options.
