NCCN Guidelines for Patients

®

Prostate Cancer, Version 1.2016

7

Treatment guide: Systemic treatment

Part 7 is a guide to systemic

treatment for advanced disease.

Advanced disease can’t be cured

by surgical treatment or radiation

therapy. Instead, treatments are given

that control the growth of cancer

throughout the body for long periods

of time.

This information is taken from the

treatment guidelines written by NCCN

experts for doctors who treat prostate

cancer. Your doctors may suggest

other treatments than those listed

in Part 7 based on your health and

personal wishes.
