What Are Prostate Cancer Vaccines, Will They Be Able To Prevent Prostate Cancer, And Where Can I Find Information About Vaccine Clinical Trials?

Question: What is salvage therapy?

Answer: Well, the good news is we have a lot of different ways to treat prostate cancer and, hopefully, cure prostate cancer. The first method we can help try to cure your prostate cancer [with] is surgery. Another method is radiation. Another method is freezing the prostate -- called cryotherapy. And finally, another common method is putting seeds, or radioactive seeds, in the prostate.

When we refer to salvage therapy, what we're really talking about is: If one of these first methods don't work, can we use another method to potentially cure your cancer?
