Prostate Cancer Treatment

Oncology at Jupiter Medical Center

While the precise causes of prostate cancer are not yet known, there are a few risk factors that seem to be connected to the condition that affects hundreds of thousands of men each year. Most cases of prostate cancer occur in men over the age of 65, who have a family history of the disease, and in some cases, men may even have inherited genes that raise the risk of prostate cancer.

These risk factors do not tell medical professionals everything, but they are important to identify so that men can be vigilant and catch prostate cancer as early as possible. Around 85% of prostate cancer diagnoses are made at early stages in the cancer’s development, and early detection bodes well for successful treatment and cure.

The facilities at the Ella Milbank Foshay Cancer Center are equipped to provide the following treatments:

  • Minimally Invasive Surgery: ​The goal of surgery is to maximize treatment while minimizing trauma. Our surgeons offer a wide array of minimally invasive surgical options, including laparoscopic approaches and robotic-assisted surgery.
  • Cyberknife Radiosurgery: While the name invokes surgery, this treatment involves no cutting. Using the most advanced technology, the CyberKnife® M6™, experts at Jupiter Medical Center are able to offer a non-surgical, pain-free treatment option for many patients who have inoperable or surgically complex tumors, or who may be looking for an alternative to surgery.
  • Radiation Therapy: Beyond the Cyberknife M6, Jupiter Medical Center stays at the forefront of radiation therapy with image guidance technology, intensity modulated radiation therapy and the Varian Trilogy Rapidarc delivery system for prostate cancers. Our facility is accredited by the American College of Radiology, as a patient this provides you with the assurance that we meet the highest standards of patient safety and quality care. Our fellowship trained, board-certified, radiation oncologists offer you their expertise combined with compassionate care.
  • Cryosurgery: This treatment for early-stage prostate cancer uses very cold temperatures to freeze and kill cancer cells. Cryotherapy is less invasive than surgery, so there is usually less blood loss, a shorter hospital stay, shorter recovery period, and less pain.
  • Hormone Treatment: This therapy is designed to block the production and use of androgens, which are hormones that stimulate prostate cancers to grow.
  • Chemotherapy: While it plays a limited role in the treatment of prostate cancer; chemotherapy is primarily for the treatment of men with advanced or recurrent prostate cancer that does not respond to hormone therapy.
  • Clinical Trials​: Clinical trials are one of the most important weapons in the continuing fight against cancer. ​These studies may offer patients the opportunity to receive new or potentially more effective therapies, as well as state-of-the-art approaches to treatment.

In addition to the innovative treatment methods implemented by world-class medical professionals, Jupiter Medical Center also provides Patient Navigators who assist in the non-medical aspects of your treatment. Their services include providing information, emotional support, guidance, and connecting you with the many hard-working doctors working to treat your prostate cancer.
