In brief: Active surveillance
For low risk prostate cancer i think it is also very important to mention the option of active surveillance as an option as well.

In brief: Many options
For early prostate cancer chocies are surgery (open or robotic) or radiation (external or seeds) commonly.
For more larger cancers or involvement of nodes radiation with hormone thearpy is effective. For cancers that have recurred or spread elsewhere, hormones can be very effective. Additional options for advanced cases include immunotherapy, chemotherapy, clinical trials.

There is also active surveillance for low grade tumors, because many more men with prostate cancer die with their cancer rather than of it. In my opinion far too many undergo radical prostatectomy, particularly older men with low grade, non-symptomatic prostate cancer.

In brief: Several
There are several treatment options available for patients with prostate cancer.
W#hich method is recommended depends on the type of cancer, your blood test results (psa), and rectal exam. Definitive treatment options include observation, radical surgery, radiation, and freezing the cancer (cryotherapy). Noncurative treatment options include hormonal manipulation or removal of the testes.
