If you have been diagnosed with prostate cancer you may have questions regarding your specific cancer and its treatment options. Turville Bay offers completely individualized prostate cancer treatment after diagnosis because each diagnosis is unique.
Radiation therapy may be a form of treatment appropriate for your situation. In that case, your physician may refer you for the patient centered care Turville Bay is known for. The teams of specialists use the newest technology and techniques in prostate cancer treatment.
At your first appointment, we will discuss whether radiation therapy is an option for your prostate cancer treatment. You will meet with one of our Radiation Oncologists, a physician that specializes in radiation therapy treatment.
During your prostate cancer consultation we will:
- get a complete medical history.
- review test results and any imaging you have had.
- explore your diagnosis and answer the questions you may have.
- consider the benefits of radiation therapy in your prostate cancer treatment.
- discuss the need for support such as Gilda's Club of Madison.
The Next Steps in Your Prostate Cancer Treatment
Treatment planning will begin in a subsequent appointment once your team confirms that radiation therapy will be helpful in your case. During treatment planning the appropriate number of treatments will be decided. In addition, we’ll schedule your treatment and decide which technology works best for your treatment.
At this time we’ll give you access to the Turville Bay’s Patient Portal. This allows you to contact us easily with any questions or concerns and gives you access to your medical information regarding prostate cancer treatment.
“Prostate Cancer is part of aging for nearly every man. It may be a harmless tumor that grows so slowly most men don’t know it’s there, or a more aggressive tumor. Because no two men are alike, Turville Bay offers a full range of treatment options for prostate cancer.”
