What You Should Know About Advanced Prostate Cancer

Because every prostate cancer patient is unique, every treatment plan is unique - personalized to your individual situation. At MidLantic Urology our goal is to provide exceptional cancer care close to your home.


What is Advanced Prostate Cancer?

Advanced prostate cancer is any form of prostate cancer in which a patient could benefit from treatment intensification with additional therapeutics including oral medication, infusion-based medications, or genetic targeted medications. This will include some men who have localized disease (the cancer is limited to the prostate), reoccurrence of their disease, or metastatic disease (the cancer has spread beyond the prostate).

MidLantic Urology’s goal is to provide every patient access to high quality care on a personal level.




What are the disease states of Advanced Prostate Cancer?

Advanced prostate cancer has several disease states, from left to right, as indicated here. A man is identified as having a certain disease state based on prostate biopsy results, imaging, and previous treatments.


How is Advanced Prostate Cancer Treated?

Treatment depends on the disease state of your cancer, and the effectiveness of current and previous treatments. Your MidLantic Urology care team may recommend one (or a combination) of these treatments:

  • Radiation therapy
  • Surgery
  • Androgen Deprivation Therapy (hormone treatment)
  • Combination of Androgen Deprivation with additional oral hormone therapy
  • Medications for patients with certain genetic alterations
  • Genetic testing
  • Chemotherapy
  • Infusion medication
  • Advanced imaging
  • Clinical trials. Your participation provides you the latest advancements in treatments for APC, and access to treatments that are being researched.

At MidLantic Urology you’ll find the same FDA-approved treatments for advanced prostate cancer found elsewhere in Philadelphia and surrounding counties. Every patient is unique. Expect your treatment plan to be personalized to your individual situation. Our goal is to provide exceptional cancer care in your local community.
