At Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA), we believe one of the best ways to learn about all that we offer, and what truly makes our cancer care different, is to listen to our prostate cancer patients' stories. In this section, you’ll find compelling, personal stories from prostate cancer survivors who received comprehensive treatment from our care team of cancer experts. These specialists from several fields—including medical, surgical and radiation oncology, nutrition, naturopathy, pain management and physical therapy—worked closely together to create and implement a customized, prostate cancer treatment plan for each patient.
What is Prostate Cancer?
Prostate cancer is cancer that develops in the prostate, a walnut-sized organ that surrounds a male’s urethra. It produces a fluid that becomes part of semen.

“My entire care team was terrific. My doctors spent a lot of time getting to know me. They asked about my feelings and what experiences I had as I was going through treatment. When they came up with a treatment plan, they asked me, 'Does this sound comfortable to you? Is this what you want to do?' And if it wasn’t exactly what I’d wanted to do, they would tweak the plan. They made the treatment plan fit me.”
“Emotionally I knew that I needed to be a Cancer Treatment Centers of America, not only for my health but for my mental well-being...The doctors and the rest of the staff let us know it was okay to feel overwhelmed and they were there to help us through it. They were always there for us every single step of the way.”
“The staff at CTCA treated me like a person, not a diagnosis. They not only took care of my medical needs, but were always available to answer questions and address concerns I might have.”
