Diagnosis – what happens next?

Understanding your treatment options

After a positive diagnosis of prostate cancer, it is important to understand your treatment options. This can feel overwhelming and confusing. Adjusting to your new reality comes as a shock and you’ll want to feel like you’re in the hands of the best specialists to help you determine your treatment pathway.

Your APC team includes both medical specialists and allied health services including specialist nurses and psychologists.

A collaboration between you and your specialists will determine the best possible treatment plan to suit your particular needs and condition. Your doctor at APC can also give you access to clinical trials suitable to your condition, and refer you to public or private hospitals for further treatments like robotic surgery, if required.

Our team will work closely with your doctors to make sure you are receiving the highest quality care and support services.
