Treatment Options 

Once diagnosed, treatment options for prostate cancer can include surgery to remove the prostate completely, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, hormone therapy or immunotherapy or biologic treatment -- treatment to boost or restore the ability of the immune system to fight cancer. Alternative medicine, including meditation, yoga and dietary supplements such as vitamins and herbs, have also been used in addition to standard treatment options. (Source: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention)
