Brachytherapy: In this minimal invasive treatment, the radioactive source is placed within the tumor. The treatment takes between 2 and 3 days, accompanied by a high rate of recovery.
Radical Prostatectomy: In this therapy, the infected prostate gland is removed by making incisions in the abdomen. The patient experiences minimal discomfort, but a high recovery rate.
Hormone Therapy: The Hormone therapy treatment minimizes the spread of the prostate cancer, by decreasing the proportion of testosterone in the patient’s body.
