Advanced Treatment for Prostate Cancer

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer among men. In fact, the National Cancer Institute has estimated that nearly 250,000 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer this year. Approximately one out of every six men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime.

Advanced prostate cancer, also known as metastatic prostate cancer, occurs when cancer cells spread beyond the prostate gland to other parts of the body. Even men with advanced prostate cancer have several excellent prostate cancer treatments to choose from. Treatment will depend on your cancer stage, your age and your overall health.

Primary treatment options include hormone therapy, immunotherapy and chemotherapy. The goal of hormone therapy is to block testosterone, which prostate cancer cells need in order to grow and spread. Immunotherapy is designed to activate the man’s immune system to attack prostate cancer. Chemotherapy uses special chemicals to stop cancer cell growth.

If you have been diagnosed with prostate cancer, talk to one of the specialists at Orange County Urology Associates. We’ll help you determine the best possible treatment for you.


Our prostate cancer patients come to us from Huntington Beach, Laguna Hills, Irvine, Mission Viejo and Lake Forest in Orange County, CA.
