Advanced Treatment Guidelines for Prostate Cancer
Whether you have received screening results that may indicate the presence of prostate cancer or you have been given a diagnosis and are seeking a second opinion, it’s easy to get overwhelmed with the information you need to know. You may be wondering about how your physician decides what treatment approach to recommend and what’s best for you.
CHI Memorial follows the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) guidelines for the diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer. Widely recognized and used as the gold standard by oncologists and other medical professionals, their recommendations are based on treatment plans of healthcare providers worldwide, the latest research and years of experience.
When you seek treatment at CHI Memorial Urology Associates, you can feel confident that the treatment plan recommended is not based on the opinion of a few, but on the analysis of a much broader medical community focused on eliminating cancer with the most advanced treatment strategies. That research, combined with our cancer specialists’ expertise, means they can individualize treatment and you have a framework that makes your options clearer and offers greater peace of mind.
