Prostate Cancer Clinic for High-Risk and Aggressive Prostate Cancer at UC San Diego Health

No one wants to hear that they have prostate cancer.

But, if someone gets that life-changing news, they don’t have to uproot their life. They can find the highest level of cancer care right here in San Diego at UC San Diego Health’s prostate cancer clinic. The new clinic focuses on improving the prognosis and quality of life for men with high risk or advanced prostate cancer. It offers the most advanced tests and treatments, including molecular and genetic tumor profiling, robotically assisted surgery and immunotherapy. The clinic’s team-based approach to care means patients can meet with three prostate cancer specialists—a medical oncologist, a urologic surgeon, and a radiation oncologist—at a single visit, to develop a truly personalized multidisciplinary care plan. If a patient has a prostate cancer diagnosis and is undecided on next steps, they can find doctors who will listen to their concerns, answer their questions, and help them weigh their options. The new clinic is part of UC San Diego Health’s Moores Cancer Center, San Diego’s only federally recognized Comprehensive Cancer Center. Patient outcomes are better at these special centers. UC San Diego Health is also ranked among the nation’s top cancer hospitals by U.S. News & World Report. A cancer diagnosis is scary, but it is less scary knowing you have some of America’s best cancer doctors at UC San Diego Health, fighting for your life as hard as they would for their own loved ones.
