For men who need treatment for prostate cancer but who choose to not have surgery or who are unable to undergo surgery due to other medical conditions, radiation is an excellent option. Radiation therapy is often the only treatment needed for prostate cancer. It may also be used to treat prostate cancer that has spread to other parts of the body or that comes back after surgery.
Prostate cancer can be effectively treated with IMRT at The Cancer Center at Lake City. This technology allows the radiation beam to be precisely sculpted to spare the surrounding tissues from the side effects of the radiation. This reduces the likelihood of impotence, incontinence and other treatment-related side effects. Others may choose prostate seed implants to manage their prostate cancer and that is also available through The Cancer Center at Lake City.
