Prostate Cancer Treatment Advancements Improve Survivorship

One in six men will face a prostate cancer diagnosis in his lifetime, totaling to 240,000 new cases this year as estimated by the American Cancer Society. Fortunately, advancements in cancer treatment have allowed nearly eight times as many men to count themselves as survivors of the pervasive disease.

September is National Prostate Cancer Awareness Month, and CyberKnife Center of Chicago encourages men seeking prostate cancer treatment to educate themselves on the range of options available to treat the disease.

“Advancements made in prostate cancer treatment have given patients the ability to take control of their diagnosis,” said Dr. Andy Su, CyberKnife Center of Chicago medical director. “Choosing which treatment approach is most appropriate for your specific case and best suits your lifestyle is pivotal not only for the long term outcome of treatment, but also your quality of life.”
