Improved treatment for prostate cancer offers new hope

Refining an old treatment may be just what the doctor ordered to help men dealing with the second most common form of cancer they face. Dr. Giesler also notes that despite fewer side-effects and a shorter recovery time, many men won’t choose cryotherapy because only two percent of men treated for prostate cancer seek additional treatment. He says most give up, but they need to know there are options if that initial treatment fails.
