Can diet help prevent small cancers from growing? If you are interested in active surveillance, this trial might be for you. Men are given instructions about diet and followed closely for several years. You or your doctor can still decide to treat at any time. If interested, please talk with one of our physcians.
Will men getting chemo and hormone therapy before having surgery for aggressive prostate cancer live longer? We think so, but have to study this to find out. This trial is going on at centers all over the US including the University of Colorado Cancer Center. Please see the following link for more info.
Our pathologists are some of the best prostate cancer pathologists in the country and we have accumulated an impressive number of prostate cancer specimens in our labs. This tissue is used to find new ways to diagnose, stage, and treat prostate cancer. We encourage most of our patients to participate in this tissue bank.
Our physicians carefully monitor their surgical outcomes. Depending on the type of treatment you choose (e.g. robotic prostatectomy), your physician may offer participation in a long-term study that will monitor your quality of life and cancer outcomes. We do the best we can to ensure we are giving patients the highest quality care.
