There are many treatment options for localised or locally advanced prostate cancer making it very difficult for patients to choose. Newly diagnosed patients must consider a myriad of factors including the risk of potential side effects, recommendations from physicians, family and friends, economic circumstances, prior medical care experiences, emotional feelings about a cancer diagnosis as well as many other influencing factors.

For all men, deciding a course of treatment is no easy task. But there is one thing for sure – each patient must be comfortable in his decision.

So how do you choose treatment for prostate cancer?.
