NCCN Guidelines for Patients

®

Prostate Cancer, Version 1.2016

5

Treatment guide: Initial treatment

Part 5 is a guide to the initial

treatment options for men with

prostate cancer. Seven groups that

are based on the prognosis of the

cancer are used to recommend

treatment options. These groups

have been tested and were found to

predict treatment outcomes well. They

provide a better basis for treatment

recommendations than just using the

cancer stage.

This information is taken from the

treatment guidelines written by NCCN

experts for prostate cancer doctors.

Your doctors may suggest other

treatments than those listed in Part

5 based on your health and personal

wishes.
