There are many treatments for prostate ca.
Curative treatments range from surgery, seed implant, imrt, along with image guided radiation. Non curative treatments include "hormone" treatment or observation. Sometimes the hormone shots are added to the other treatments if the pts factors are more advanced. Treatment options are many and must be customized per patient.

In brief: Yes

The necessity and type of treatment would depend on patient age and life expectancy.
Treatments such as radiation or surgery may be commonly used. Depending on the situation, hormone deprivation may be used in conjunction with the above or alone. Cryotherapy and hifu are sometimes used. Chemotherapy may be used in very advanced cases.
