Prostate Cancer Staging

With regular screening, most prostate cancers are found before they spread to other areas of the body. Many prostate cancers do not go beyond Stage 2; however, it’s important to learn about prostate cancer stages and understand what each stage entails. Knowing where the cancer is located and how much is present is determined in the staging process.


Prostate Cancer Treatment Options

Prostate cancer does not always require an immediate treatment plan. Your prostate cancer specialist at NYOH will review your test results and talk about active surveillance if they feel that it is an appropriate approach for slow-growing forms of the disease. Based on your stage of prostate cancer and your general overall health, we will work together to develop a prostate cancer treatment plan that’s best for you. Your treatment options may include active surveillance, surgery, radiation therapy or hormone therapy.


Gleason Score and Grade Groups

Diagnosing prostate cancer starts with a biopsy. When abnormal cells are found in the prostate tissue samples removed during the biopsy, a pathologist will assign a score to the two most predominant cell patterns to create a Gleason score. Based on the Gleason score, the prostate cancer’s grade is determined.
