Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States among men and women, and it occurs most often in people who smoke.

Prostate cancer treatment

Prostate cancer affects the prostate gland and may spread to surrounding structures. While most men with prostate cancer have no symptoms, physicians can find prostate cancer during a regular checkup, using a combination of a prostate-specific antigen (PSA) blood test and a digital rectal exam (DRE).

We offer a variety of prostatectomy procedures, including robot-assisted prostatectomy. The goals of prostatectomy are to remove the prostate cancer, preserve urinary function and preserve erectile function.
