Advanced Prostate Cancer Center
Advanced treatment options for advanced or metastatic prostate cancer.
Our Advanced Prostate Cancer Center (APCC) offers cutting edge treatment for patients with more advanced or more aggressive prostate cancer. This includes patients who are diagnosed with more aggressive variants or prostate cancer of those who have metastasis to other areas (typically bone or lymph nodes) at the time of diagnosis. We also provide advanced therapeutic options for patients who have previously been treated for their prostate cancer but the cancer has now returned and may be spreading. Our goal is to keep the cancer in remission for as long as possible all while maintaining a high quality of life.
The AUS Advanced Prostate Cancer Center utilizes palliative treatments intended to slow down the growth and treat the cancer's symptoms. The treatment options for advanced or metastatic prostate cancer can get confusing and new treatments are coming out every year. Your team at the Advanced Prostate Cancer Center strives to make understanding all the options as easy as possible. In treating advanced prostate cancer, we utilize multiple different treatment modalities.
In addition to treating a patient's advanced prostate cancer, we also offer all our patients genetic testing. Multiple genes have been associated with aggressive or metastatic prostate cancer and some of these genes can be passed down through generations which are known as germline mutation. This can increase risk of prostate cancer for men in the family and breast or ovarian cancer for women in the family. There are also some new treatments available for prostate cancer depending on the presence of certain genes.
In addition to treating the prostate cancer, we are also very aggressive in making sure patients have optimal bone health. Many treatments for prostate cancer can weaken the bones and prostate cancer often spread to bone so making sure we keep the bones strong and healthy will minimize the risk of fracture.
