Learn More About Prostate Cancer

  • What causes prostate cancer? The exact causes of prostate cancer are not yet known. However, knowing your risk factors puts you in charge of your prostate health. You and your specialist can work together to create a screening plan that increases the chances of prostate cancer being detected early and treated effectively.
  • Prostate cancer symptoms. Most men will not experience prostate cancer symptoms until the cancer reaches advanced stages. For this reason, it is important to know your risk factors and have an accurate idea of your screening needs. Prostate cancer symptoms and signs may include difficulties with urination, pain or burning, and erectile dysfunction. Some symptoms may suggest cancer has spread to other parts of the body.
  • Prostate cancer screening and diagnosis. Prostate cancer screening enables a physician to detect prostate cancer in its early stages when it does not cause symptoms. Screening results can lead to further tests that ultimately are used to formally diagnose prostate cancer. There are different ways to screen for prostate cancer. It typically consists of a prostate specific antigen (PSA) blood level test, digital rectal exam, and a physical examination. A biopsy is used to diagnose, grade and stage prostate cancer.
  • Prostate cancer treatment. You may have several options for prostate cancer treatment, including surgery, radiation and other therapies. In some cases, actively monitoring prostate cancer may be recommended instead of treatment. Regular screening results can suggest prostate cancer is growing and needs to be treated. Additionally, RWJBarnabas Health, together with Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey, offers cutting-edge prostate cancer clinical trials to our patients.
  • Prostate cancer facts. We provide helpful facts about prostate cancer, health and support. The answers to frequently asked questions give you the information you need to know, including where to find support services including support groups.
  • Prostate cancer team. Your prostate cancer care team may include experts in prostate surgery, medical oncology, radiation oncology and urology. Learn more about our world-class team of prostate cancer experts.
