Prostate Cancer Center

Getting Diagnosed with Prostate Cancer

If you have been diagnosed with prostate cancer, take comfort in knowing the oncology specialists at UMass Memorial Health Cancer Center provide the most advanced cancer care.

The prostate is a small gland that produces the fluid that nourishes and transports sperm. Prostate cancer is the most common type of cancer in men. When it’s detected early and still confined to the prostate, there’s a better chance of successful treatment for prostate cancer.

Prostate Cancer Services We Provide

Advanced Robotic Surgery

We use the da Vinci S Robotic Surgery System to perform minimally invasive robotic surgery, such as a prostatectomy (removal of all/part of the prostate), on certain prostate cancer patients. It’s an incredibly accurate procedure that results in less pain and faster recovery time.
