Why Choose Monmouth Medical Center for Prostate Cancer Treatment

Prostate Cancer - Improving Your Odds

While prostate cancer is second to skin cancer as the most common form of cancer among American men, highly effective treatment options can help foil the disease if it is detected early.

"Treatment depends on several factors, including the age and health of the patient, the stage of the cancer and whether it has spread to other organs," says urologist Jules Geltzeiler, M.D. "After weighing these factors, the medical team works with each patient to develop an individualized treatment plan that best suits his needs and gets him on the road to recovery."

At Monmouth Medical Center, the region's most comprehensive prostate management program offers free lecture, screenings and a monthly support group to help men with prostate cancer "learn to cope through knowledge and hope."
