About 1 in 8 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime. Having prostate cancer means there’s a malignant tumor in your prostate gland. Any man can get prostate cancer, but there are certain risk factors that increase your chance. These risk factors include African-American race, age 40 or older and a family history of prostate cancer.

Prostate cancer symptoms

Early prostate cancer is usually found in a screening. If the cancer is advanced, you may notice these signs of prostate cancer:

  • Changes in urination, including difficulty starting or the inability to urinate, weak or stop-and-start urine flow, and sudden urges to urinate
  • Painful, burning or frequent urination
  • Difficulty having an erection
  • Blood in the urine or semen
  • Back, hip or pelvic pain

See your doctor if you have these symptoms. Whether or not it’s cancer, an earlier diagnosis generally leads to a better treatment outcome. When diagnosed early, prostate cancer survival rates can reach 90 percent.

Leading-edge treatment at Goshen Center for Cancer Care

If you have been diagnosed with prostate cancer, your doctor checks your prostate specific antigen (PSA) levels in your blood and runs other tests to see if the cancer has spread. This information along with the stage of your cancer and your personal preferences helps us create a treatment plan.

To treat prostate cancer, we offer prostate brachytherapy, which targets cancer cells in the prostate gland while causing minimal damage to nearby healthy tissue, and SpaceOAR/Hydrogel to protect the rectum during radiotherapy. If targeted radiation therapy is needed, we may be able to deliver through our state-of-the-art Ethos™ therapy that relies on artificial intelligence to create and adapt plans in minutes. This device is one of several we use to target cancer and preserve the surrounding healthy tissue. Our advanced treatments allow men to return to active and productive lives sooner with fewer complications.

Integrative therapies, such as nutrition therapy and naturopathic medicine, are always part of your treatment plan at our center. We also offer clinical trials for prostate cancer. Ask your doctor if a clinical trial is right for you.

If you need a screening, second opinion or a trusted treatment team, we are here to help. Call (888) 492-4673 (HOPE) today.
