Part 7 is a guide to treatment for advanced disease.
Advanced disease can’t be cured by surgical treatment
or radiation therapy. Instead, there are treatments that
can control cancer growth for long periods of time. The
information in this guide is taken from the treatment
guidelines written by NCCN experts for prostate cancer
doctors. However, your doctors may suggest other tests
and treatments based on your health and personal
wishes.
