Prostate cancer occurs when abnormal cells grow out of control in the prostate gland. There are more than 200,000 cases diagnosed in the US each year, and it’s the second-leading cause of cancer death in men.

However, widespread screening, early detection and improved treatment allow more men to survive prostate cancer. If the cancer is found early and contained in the gland, the five-year survival rate approaches 100 percent. Treatment for prostate cancer may include chemotherapy, radiation, cryotherapy, hormone therapy or surgery.

Renown Health's Institute for Cancer bring a multidisciplinary approach to prostate cancer care. We offer screening, diagnosis, treatment options and supportive services specific to your type of prostate cancer and your individual needs.
