Mammography can lead to detection of breast cancer at its earliest and most treatable stage.
MRI uses a magnetic field and radio waves to create detailed images of the organs and tissues within your body.
Treatments and drugs
Hormone therapy for prostate cancer cuts off your body's supply of testosterone, causing cancer cells to die or grow more slowly.
