In brief: Mutiple options
Generally speaking, there are many ways to treat prostate cancer including surgery, radiation with xray beam, implants with seeds or high dose rate needles, cryosurgery (freezing).
Hormones sometimes are used on top of the above treatment. The decision will depend on stage, aggressiveness of disease, patient condition and his choice.
