The Prostate Cancer Center at UCSF is dedicated to providing the best comprehensive care for those with the disease and those at risk of developing it. Our experts share one vision — to prevent and cure prostate cancer and improve the quality of life of men undergoing treatment.
The center's services include:
Our emphasis is on prostate cancer screening and counseling for early detection, individually tailored treatment plans that may include a variety of approaches, and research to better understand the disease and its causes. Treatment may include several options, such as chemotherapy, radiation therapy or surgery. We also provide nutrition counseling, support groups, patient education materials and free classes at the UCSF Cancer Resource Center.
For patients newly diagnosed with prostate cancer, the Prostate Cancer Center presents an educational overview of living with prostate cancer, covering diagnosis, treatment options and outcomes, and recovery, as well as diet and lifestyle changes, complementary therapies and stress reduction.
The center also participates in the state-funded Improving Access, Counseling and Treatment for Californians with Prostate Cancer (IMPACT) that provides services to low-income men in California with limited or no health insurance.
In addition, we are at the forefront of prostate cancer research exploring the biological processes underlying the disease and translating these discoveries into more effective prevention, diagnosis and treatment strategies.
