Cancer Care

Focusing on Prostate Cancer Surveillance

Ascension Wisconsin's urology doctors/care teams in the Fox Valley provide complete men's health services for prostate, urinary and genital concerns.

Prostate Cancer Surveillance

In Wisconsin, prostate cancer is on the rise. There are 25 percent more cases diagnosed annually. Men at risk need to have an annual PSA screening test and a men’s health examination. The older the man, the higher the risk. Family history of this cancer or being an African-American male increases your risk.  

Our urologists can advise and provide the information you need to make an informed decision. If prostate cancer is detected, these doctors provide coordinated care with the radiation oncologist and medical oncologist. Prostate cancer is very treatable when detected early. 

FIND A DOCTOR

At Ascension, our compassionate and personalized care helps our patients physically and emotionally. We have two cancer centers with extensive diagnostic testing, treatments and resources:

Our cancer care team includes highly knowledgeable cancer specialists, nurse navigators, dietitians and rehab therapists. Our programs focus on strengthening your bone health following androgen deprivation therapy and other treatments. We work together to give you the best personalized treatment plan for your needs. 

Innovative Cancer Care

There is no singular prostate cancer treatment that is right for every man. With Ascension doctors you get the experience you need plus access to innovative, cancer-fighting treatments:

  • Our doctors gauge the most appropriate way to actively monitor early stage disease.
  • Precision radiation therapy targets the cancer and spares healthy tissue.


We continually look at ways to improve the delivery of targeted radiation therapy while reducing the side effects.

Stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) targets the prostate and delivers precision radiation in fewer treatments. 

Brachytherapy delivers radiation from inside the prostate to target the cancer. We use proven cancer treatment protocols and the most up-to-date technology. 

Dual chemotherapy + hormone therapy improves survival in hormone-resistant metastatic prostate cancer.
