Prostate Cancer

Prostate Cancer - Treatment Options

An individual's treatment path for prostate cancer is determined after assessing the risk level of your disease. Treatment paths are also greatly influenced by age and lifestyle of an individual with prostate cancer. For example, a 40 year old man diagnosed with early stage & low-risk prostate cancer may still decide to opt for a robotic prostatectomy to eliminate lifelong surveillance / watchful waiting. Then again, another 40 year old man may choose to forgo active treatment, and regularly monitor to check for progression of the disease. 

Prostate Cancer - Diagnosis

For men with an abnormal PSA, there are now additional tests that may be considered before prostate needle biopsy. These include prostate Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and other genomic tests such as the 4k test and the Prostate Health Index (PHI).

Prostate Cancer - Risks & Causes

Older age is a risk factor for prostate cancer. Autopsy studies have shown that 30% of men in the 5th decade of life have evidence of prostate cancer versus 50% of men in the 8th decade of life. In the United States, 60% of men with prostate cancer are diagnosed after the age of 65 years.

Prostate Cancer

Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer-related death in men. However, many men who are diagnosed with prostate cancer may be at low risk. Urologists at Weill Cornell Medicine help you understand your risks, and will provide evaluation for your specific circumstances. When pursuing treatment, we offer the most advanced treatment options including surgery, radiation therapy, and androgen deprivation therapy.
