In brief: Surgery/Radiation

The 2 main forms of curative treatment for prostate cancer is radical surgery or some form of radiation therapy.
There is also cryotherapy which is freezing of the prostate but not as common as surgery or radiation. If the cancer is advanced, then treatment consists of hormonal therapy.

In brief: It depends

Not all prostate cancer needs to be treated.
Some prostate cancer is verrrrry slow growing and can be watched. We are constantly learning more about this disease and recommendations are changing. More and more men are being watched. Sometimes the trreatments for the disese are worse and more dangerous than the disesae itself.
