A diagnosis of cancer can be a frightening and emotional experience. For men who have been diagnosed with prostate cancer, those feelings can be coupled with the worry over possible lasting side effects of the disease and surgery. Fortunately MUSC has the most comprehensive treatment program for prostate cancer in South Carolina, including offering the greatest array of treatment options of any other health care facility in the state.
