The prostate is a walnut-sized gland located in front of your rectum and underneath your bladder. Cancer in this gland is the most common cancer in men (other than skin cancer). It’s also the second leading cause of cancer deaths in men, second to lung cancer.
Prostate cancer is common in men older than 65. It usually grows slowly and can take years to grow large enough to cause any problems. As with other cancers, treatment for prostate cancer works best when the cancer is found early. Often, prostate cancer that has spread responds to treatment.
CoxHealth offers several types of advanced treatment for prostate cancer, including permanent seed brachytherapy, high dose radiation brachytherapy and minimally invasive robotic surgery.
