Focused solely on the needs of advanced prostate cancer patients and their families
Prostate cancer is the most common non-skin cancer among men, with approximately 180,000 new cases diagnosed in the U.S. every year. About 1 in 9 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime.
Thanks to early detection, most of these cases can be cured. But some are not that simple.
There is hope.
If your prostate cancer was caught late—or has come back even after appropriate treatment—there are still treatment options available. Recent advances can help put cancers like yours into remission, or at least slow them down, with minimal side effects on your quality of life.
Advanced Prostate Cancer Clinic
The Advanced Prostate Cancer Clinic (APCC) at Central Ohio Urology Group is focused solely on the needs of advanced prostate cancer patients and their families. Our skilled urologists and specialists are supported by a caring team of medical professionals who are focused on meeting the needs of advanced prostate cancer patients and their families.
To us, every patient is important and deserves personalized care. Working with your existing doctors, we will build a plan that gives you the most advanced and appropriate treatments for the cancer you are facing.
Clinical research trials
As part of providing the best possible care to advanced prostate cancer patients, we participate in leading-edge clinical trials. Trial participants may benefit from early access to new, improved treatments. Your study-related lab and radiology tests are often free, and you can feel good knowing you’ve played a vital role in developing new treatments with the potential to save many more lives.
If you’re interested in this option, ask your doctor. He or she will help you determine if you are eligible and if it’s the right one for you.
Advanced prostate cancer is cancer that is not cured or not curable by treatments of the prostate area alone. It includes locally advanced prostate cancer and metastatic prostate cancer (cancer that has spread).
We are currently accepting new patients at APCC. Call (614) 396-2484 to schedule a consultation.
