Variable: The cost of any surgical procedure is variable. There are usually no set prices that is uniform from hospital to hospital. The total price will include variables fees from the surgeon, anethesiologist, pathology, and the use of the laser equipment. It is best to get a price quote from the hospital before the surgery since the price is negotiable.

Hematology and Oncology 30 years experience
Quite a few: Early stage (cancer within prostate): robotic or open surgery, standard radiation; radiation seeds; cryosurgery. For cancer with local spread to nodes typically radiation and hormonal therapy is used. For recurring cancer or for spread to far organs; a sequence of therapies is used. Initially, a series of 3-4 hormonal drugs one by one, then immune therapy (provenge) and then chemotherapy.
