A Full Spectrum of Care for Prostate Cancer
Detecting and treating prostate cancer at an early stage, when it is most curable, can significantly improve survival rates.
To help men on Long Island, Stony Brook University Cancer Center has opened the Prostate Cancer Diagnostic and Treatment Center. The Center offers a full spectrum of care, including advanced diagnostics and treatment from a multidisciplinary team of experts, for patients with prostate cancer.
Massimiliano Spaliviero, MD, serves as the Director for the Center, with Melanie Dale, RN, as the nurse navigator. The Prostate Cancer Diagnostic and Treatment Center was established to assess the risk for the disease and offer a comprehensive evaluation to men with:
- Newly detected elevated prostate-specific antigen (PSA)
- An abnormal finding from a digital rectal exam
- A family history of prostate cancer
- A precancerous condition in the prostate
- Elevated PSA and biopsies that are negative for cancer
- Positive biopsies that need further diagnostic tests to evaluate the aggressiveness of the disease
- Possible recurrence of prostate cancer after treatments
- Cancer that wasn’t eliminated after surgery or radiation therapy
- Prostate cancer that has spread to other parts of the body (metastatic cancer)
- Complications of prostate cancer treatment
An individual can call to make an appointment or physicians can refer their patient to the Prostate Cancer Diagnostic and Treatment Center.
