Mayo Clinic doctors and scientists are leaders in prostate cancer research. Areas of focus include innovating diagnostic techniques, discovering and perfecting treatment options, understanding ways to improve quality of life, and analyzing long-term follow-up data.
For decades, Mayo Clinic has been compiling a database of men who have had surgery for prostate cancer. Researchers use this information to monitor outcomes, search for trends, determine effective treatment and ensure overall quality of care.
Cancer research is conducted in coordination with the Mayo Clinic Cancer Center. The Mayo Clinic Cancer Center receives funding from the National Cancer Institute and is designated as a comprehensive cancer center — recognition for an institution's scientific excellence and multidisciplinary resources focused on cancer prevention, diagnosis and treatment.
