7 Keys to Prostate Cancer Management


THURSDAY, Oct. 19 (HealthDay News) -- Early detection and treatment are crucial to defeat prostate cancer, says a Johns Hopkins Health Alerts report that outlines seven key ways to treat prostate cancer and provides advice on how to prevent it.

The 7 Keys to Treating Prostate Cancer report was written by Dr. Jacek L. Mostwin of Johns Hopkins' James Buchanan Brady Urological Institute. The report is meant to help prostate cancer patients make informed decisions about their medical care.

The report offers the following seven keys to prostate cancer treatment:

- Understand Your Prostate Biopsy

- Choose the Right Treatment
- Dealing with Erectile Dysfunction
- Seek Extra Help-If Needed
- Understand the Role of Diet
