Diagnosing prostate cancer
The majority of prostate cancers tend to be caught early. If you catch the cancer before it spreads outside the prostate, the 5-year survival rate is nearly 100%. Our specialists use leading-edge technologies like CT scans, PET scans, and bone scans to provide an accurate diagnosis quickly, so you can begin treatment right away. The sooner you begin treatment, the higher the chances of success. Find out more about prostate cancer diagnosis.
