  • What are the risk factors of prostate cancer?

    There are several factors that may increase a man’s risk of getting prostate cancer.

    • Age: Men over the age of 50 have a great chance of being diagnosed with prostate cancer.
    • Race: Research shows that prostate cancer is both more common and more aggressive in men of African descent.
    • Geography: Prostate cancer is more common in North America, northwestern Europe, Australia, and in the Caribbean Islands.
    • Family History: If a family member has been diagnoses with the disease, your risk factor doubles. Some familial genetic mutations such as BRCA1 and BRCA2 can also increase your risk.
    • Lifestyle: Certain lifestyle habits such as high saturated fat diets, smoking and obesity can lead to more aggressive prostate cancer

    It’s not only important to know your risk factors, but to also have regular prostate cancer screening when one or more are present.

    Find out more about prostate cancer risk factors.

  • How is prostate cancer treated?

    As with all diseases, your treatment will depend on your personal diagnosis. Common treatment options include active surveillance, surgery, radiation therapy, hormone therapy, and chemotherapy.

    Learn more about cancer treatment options.

  • What are the patient benefits of being an affiliate of the US Oncology Network?

    Arizona Oncology’s affiliation with the US Oncology Network offers our patients access to multiple clinical trials for cancer treatments. In fact, patient participation in this research has led to over 41 new FDA-approved cancer therapies.

    Learn more about ongoing research trials.

  • Does Arizona Oncology do genetic testing?

    Yes. We use genetic testing to help families determine if there is a hereditary link to cancer. This type of testing is helpful in determining treatment options and gives families more data to make informed health decisions.
