Prostate cancer treatment

Recent research suggests that some men who receive a prostate cancer diagnosis may be seeking out treatment options that are more aggressive than what they actually need.

Prostate cancer has become more treatable in recent years due to advances in medical technology. However, the American Cancer Society reports that in 2010, there will be more than 200,000 new cases diagnosed, along with more than 32,000 deaths.
