Prostate cancer care in Aurora

Prostate cancer is relatively common, affecting one out of every six men. When abnormal cells in the prostate grow out of control, a cancerous tumor develops.

At The Medical Center of Aurora (TMCA), our prostate cancer team provides everything you need, from initial diagnosis and staging through treatment and follow-up care.
