Prostate Cancer

Prostate cancer is one of the most prevalent types of cancer in men, yet many men never have any symptoms. In fact, this type of cancer can cause no symptoms for many years. Prostate cancer is often detected during a routine examination. UAMS can help you from the diagnosis to the treatment of prostate cancer.

Most of the men diagnosed with prostate cancer are more than 65 years old. Your diet and lifestyle can increase your risk of getting prostate cancer along with your family history.

Our compassionate doctors at UAMS can give you the care you need once diagnosed. An important part of the process is determining the stage of the cancer, which can be done in several ways:

  • Bone scan
  • Ultrasound
  • CT scan
  • MRI
  • Lymph node
  • Biopsy

At UAMS, we will help you get the best treatment for your condition. The treatment for prostate cancer will depend on what kind of cancer cells you have and how far they have spread. Your age and overall well-being will also influence the treatment. Treatments include:

  • Surgery
  • Radiation
  • Hormone therapy
  • Combination of these

Our caring doctors are knowledgeable about the latest surgical techniques. And our surgeons are among the few highly qualified surgeons in the state to offer robot-assisted surgeries.
