The Prostate Center at Norton Cancer Institute is committed to exploring advanced treatment options and counseling for patients with prostate difficulties and cancer.
Prostate cancer is generally slow growing, and the innovative treatment options available through Norton Cancer Institute are highly effective. Most prostate cancers are diagnosed while still confined to the prostate, when a patient has more options available.
Treatment options may include:
- External beam radiation therapy
- Surgical removal of the prostate or radical prostatectomy
- Radioactive seed implants
Norton Hospital was the first in Kentucky to offer radioactive seed implantation, an innovative technique that destroys cancerous tumors from inside the prostate. Norton Audubon Hospital and Norton Suburban Hospital now offer this advanced treatment.
