Newly Diagnosed Prostate Cancer? What You Should Know

If you or someone you know has recently been diagnosed with prostate cancer, you’re probably thinking hard about what to do next. Learning about cancer and understanding the various treatment options are good starts. But the most important decision is selecting where to get treatment. 

Just Diagnosed? Get a Second Opinion

Low-dose CT Scanning for Smokers and Ex-Smokers Getting a second opinion is more than a formality. It’s an essential way to verify stage, location--even the existence of your cancer. A second opinion may also provide access to potentially new treatments or clinical trials that are available. Get a second opinion at SCCA.
Studies have shown that the first treatment you receive for cancer is by far the most important. That’s why your first choice in a treatment center needs to be the right one.

Patients who begin their treatment at Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA) often have better outcomes than those who started treatment elsewhere. Not only can you expect the best standard of care available, patients at SCCA have access to advanced therapies and treatments being explored in over a dozen ongoing clinical trials for prostate cancer conducted at SCCA’s parent organizations, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and UW Medicine.
 
Everything you need is right here: a world-class team of surgeons, medical oncologists, radiology oncologists and pathologists who specialize in prostate cancer. You’ll also find the most advanced diagnostic, treatment and recovery programs, as well as extensive support to help you cope with your cancer.

Take Control

At SCCA, you may choose a specialist for a specific type of treatment, or you may choose the team approach, where SCCA specialists collaborate, discuss all of your options and recommend a treatment plan based on your type of cancer and how it has progressed.
