Prostate Cancer: The Importance of Informed Treatment Decisions

Prostate cancer is a disease that will affect 1 man in 7 during his lifetime. Whether it’s you or a loved one facing a prostate cancer diagnosis, Oklahoma CyberKnife urges men to seek out all information available in order to make the best and most informed treatment decisions.

Reviewing your medical history with your doctor, asking questions, utilizing online resources and thoroughly researching the possible side effects associated with certain prostate cancer treatment methods are all important steps while weighing your options.

Our center treats prostate cancer with CyberKnife® technology, an advanced system that offers patients a nonsurgical, specialized form of treatment that can be completed in five or fewer sessions. The reduced impact on quality of life, low side effects, and brief duration of CyberKnife treatment are especially encouraging for men evaluating their treatment options.

According to the American Cancer Society, there will be 233,000 new cases of prostate cancer diagnosed in 2014 alone. For information about how our center treats prostate cancer, click here.
