Types of cancer

Prostate cancer

Prostate cancer is one of the most common cancers in men. It can now be detected earlier and earlier due to PSA (Prostate Specific Antigen) levels in the blood.

The amount of PSA in the blood stream can be measured using a simple blood test. Radiotherapy is effective at treating this type of cancer, regardless of its stage. Radiotherapy can also be used in combination with hormone therapy or following surgery. Treatment lasts between six and eight weeks.

Centre d'Oncologie des Eaux-Vives specialises in treating prostate cancer.



Other types of cancer

Our Geneva-based cancer centre also specialises in the treatment of all solid tumours and in particular brain cancer, head and neck cancers, lung cancer, rectal cancer, womb cancer and skin cancer as well as the treatment of metastatic cancer with a primary site of these cancers.

Patients can also be treated at the centre’s haematology-oncology unit.
