What are the treatment options for prostate cancer?
Treatment options for prostate cancer are many, and while this is an advantage in that prostate cancer is such a common disease in men, it can also be a cause of great confusion. The following overview presents some information about these options, but it is not a complete explanation of any of these. You can find more information on treatment options in the NCCN Clinical Practice Guideline for Patients on Prostate Cancer for 2014 and the Physician Data Query (PDQ) website of the National Cancer Institute.
Conventional medical treatment options for prostate cancer include:
Immunotherapy and other targeted therapies
Bisphosphonates and denosumab
Radiopharmaceuticals (radioactive substances used as drugs)
Research techniques including high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) and others
