Prostate Information Booklet
Whether you have been diagnosed with prostate cancer, have a family member who has been or you are just interested in what treatment options Centra has to offer, this helpful booklet provides an overview of our services.
Prostate cancer is a common form of cancer, especially in older men. This cancer begins in the prostate, which is a small gland beneath the bladder. Depending on the stage of the cancer, it can spread beyond the prostate to nearby organs or to other parts of the body. Fortunately, in many cases, prostate cancer grows slowly.
Prostate cancer is a complicated disease that includes many factors that must be considered when planning treatment options. It is important to realize that not all prostate cancer is the same and that there is not always one "best" option for every situation. The Centra Prostate Health Center team will work with you to help make a decision that is appropriate based on your age, overall health and specifics related to your disease.
For more information, we encourage you to view our booklet, Understanding Prostate Cancer Treatment, available online here.
