Prostate Cancer

Prostate cancer may be the most common cancer among American men, but with early detection and specialists using advanced techniques, the outlook is promising. Many men are living better and longer lives with prostate cancer.

"The facilities at Holy Cross Hospital are modern, but beyond the equipment, they treat you not as another case, but as a person. And that makes a huge difference in surviving this illness.”

- Aaron Barkatt, Ph.D., prostate Cancer Survivor

Early Detection and Diagnosis
Prevention and early detection of prostate cancer are by far the most effective way to fight the disease. Holy Cross Hospital offers a wide range of diagnostic tools to help doctors discover cancer and effectively target therapies.

Treatment Options
Today, there are a variety of treatment options available for managing prostate cancer. Your prostate cancer doctor and care team will develop an individual treatment plan just for you, based on when cancer is diagnosed and which therapies will produce the best outcome. Any treatment plan will also reflect the lifestyle that works best for you and your family.
