While prostate cancer is in its early stages, treatment is usually successful. One option is the surgical removal of the prostate. There are also various techniques for destroying only the cancer cells, as opposed to complete removal of the prostate.Radiation therapy, chemotherapy, and hormone therapy may be necessary for treating the disease.
Prostate cancer that has spread to other parts of the body, such as: the lungs, lymph nodes, or bones, is incurable, though it may be controlled for many years. Most men in this condition live about five years or more. Because prostate cancer progresses at a much slower rate than other cancers, most men with prostate cancer will die from other causes. Many men die without even knowing that they had the disease because they were not experiencing any severe symptoms.
