At Maryland Oncology Hematology, our radiation oncology team is a leader in the diagnosis and treatment of all types and stages of prostate cancer. Utilizing the most advanced radiation technologies and treatments available, our experienced team treats a range of diseases with radiation therapy, from localized prostate cancer to tumors that have advanced to organs near the prostate. Our radiation oncologist works closely with medical oncology, urology, diagnostics, pathology, genetic risk evaluation, and supportive care to deliver unparalleled continuity of care for patients.
Why Choose Radiation?
Radiation therapy is a good choice for men with early-stage prostate cancer or for older men with other health problems. Many patients with prostate cancer want to avoid the risks associated with surgery, including bleeding and infection. Radiation can help avoid these major risks and may preserve sexual function for longer when compared to surgery.
