South Chicago Area Prostate Cancer Center

Prostate cancer is the second most common type of cancer among men in this country. The 5-year survival rate in the United States for men diagnosed with early-stage prostate cancer is greater than 99%. Most cases of prostate cancer are treatable because of early detection through regular screenings and advances in treatments. Compared to other cancer types, prostate cancer is different as it typically grows slowly and can be monitored for years before active treatment is needed.

The prostate cancer specialists at Affiliated Oncologists are here to help you choose the best treatment plan based on the stage, grade, age, and your overall health condition. Learn how prostate cancer is detected and treated so you can make informed decisions about your care.
