Richard Hayden is a quick-witted 80-year-old living in Manhattan. He enjoys being healthy and active; taking advantage of all that New York City has to offer during his retired years.
Earlier this year, during a routine visit with his primary care physician, he was told that his prostate-specific antigen (referred to as "PSA") levels were abnormally high. Richard was then referred to Dr. Loo, a urologist at Weill Cornell Medicine. After several more blood tests, Dr. Loo became concerned about the potential of prostate cancer.
If you've been diagnosed with prostate cancer, determining your treatment plan can be stressful and overwhelming. There is no single "best" course of action; it depends on you, your lifestyle goals, and your specific type of cancer.
Prostate cancer can be treated with active surveillance, radiation therapy, medical & hormone therapies, surgery, and various ablation procedures such as cryotherapy. Prostate cancer specialists, such as the Urologic Oncologists at Weill Cornell Medicine, will help you customize the right treatment plan for you.
