Prostate cancer is one of the most common cancers in men. On average, 14% of men are diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime. There is no single option that suits every man with prostate cancer. If the cancer is detected at its earlier stage and hasn’t spread past the prostate, the patients have several treatment options to choose from. In many cases, the localized prostate cancers develop too slowly to have any effect on your health or lifespan. Those patients might not need a treatment right away or ever.
