Prostate cancer is a disease in which cancerous cells develop in the prostate, one of the male sex glands. Cancer of the prostate is one of the most commonly occurring cancers in men in the United States. Although the cause of the disease is not known, we do know that the growth of cancer cells (like normal cells) is stimulated by male hormones, particularly testosterone.
We have an expert team of urologists, medical and radiation oncologists and allied healthcare teams who are committed to providing care that is personalized in every sense of the word.
Having prostate cancer can be challenging. However, understanding the disease, learning how to manage symptoms and side effects, maintaining your emotional health, and engaging in strategies for healthy living can provide a sense of control and enhance well-being. We can prepare you for the many choices and issues you might face throughout your treatment.

Our book was spawned from three generations of prostate cancer. We’ve survived, we’re thriving, and we want to share our story. In our new book, my dad and I describe what the last two generations did to increase our chances for longevity post-surgery.
