One in six men in the United States will develop prostate cancer at some point in their lives, making this cancer second in prevalence only to skin cancer.
The good news is that early diagnosis and treatment are leading to increased rates of survivorship. According to the American Cancer Society, men diagnosed with localized prostate cancer today have nearly the same 10-year survival as men without prostate cancer.
Lahey urologists have led the way in developing open and minimally invasive treatments for prostate cancer, drastically improving the quality of life for those who undergo treatment for the disease. They also provide expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of benign conditions of the prostate, including enlarged prostate.
