In brief: Yes
Early prostate cancer is best treated with surgery or radiation.
For prostate cancer that has spread hormonal manipulations are next. Chemotherapy is down the line.

In brief: Complex
Suspect you are asking about treatment of prostatic carcinoma.
The decision will depend upon the staging of the cancer, the age of the patient, the skill level of the surgeon and the acceptable risks to the patient. All this should be carefully discussed with the urologist and if necessary obtain a second opinion.
