Prostate Cancer

It’s one of the most common cancers in men. When it’s discovered early, prostate cancer can be treated successfully – if it needs treatment at all.

It’s common and easy to treat.

Good News

Apart from skin cancer, prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men. With regular screening, it’s usually found before it spreads to other parts of the body. That’s good news, because cancer that hasn’t spread or “metastasized” is easier to treat and easier to cure.

Not every man with prostate cancer needs to be treated right away. In many cases, early-stage prostate cancer will not spread or cause any problems or side effects for a long time, if ever, so your doctor may suggest active surveillance – where you watch the cancer closely instead of treating it.

Better News

If prostate cancer ever does become a problem – or if it metastasizes – you have the depth and breadth of the INTEGRIS Health and the INTEGRIS Cancer Institute behind you, with the region’s foremost collection of physicians, specialists and therapies, like one of only a handful of Proton Therapy centers in the country. We’re here for you every step of the way, from the first diagnosis and staging to treatment and even beyond – with rehabilitation designed specifically for cancer survivors.

The Multidisciplinary Cancer Clinic

Prostate cancer treatment used to mean dozens of appointments at different facilities with multiple specialists, but with our Multidisciplinary Cancer Clinic, the process is streamlined. We gather our physicians and specialists in one room to decide the best course of treatment for you. That means the time you have to spend between diagnosis and treatment is dramatically reduced. We know this can be a challenging time, so please ask your physician about any concerns or questions you might have.
