This year in the United States, almost 180,000 men will
be told that they have prostate cancer. After a diagnosis
of prostate cancer, a man and his family face several choices
regarding treatment. Decisions involve many factors, personal
as well as medical. Before making these decisions, it is
very important that he learns about all the options available.
With this knowledge, a newly diagnosed prostate cancer patient
can participate more confidently with his doctor in planning
his individual treatment.
