How to Make a Prostate Cancer Diagnosis? And the Treatments?

Q:  
My father is likely to get a prostate cancer. He is 65 years old. How to make a diagnosis and what are the effective treatments?

A:  
At first, I think, you should take your father to do common tests to check for prostate cancer, like:
a digital rectal exam
a PSA blood test
a biopsy

 

Besides, here are main treatment options for the prostate cancer:
Radical prostatectomy (surgery)
Focal Therapy
Hormone therapy
Chemotherapy
Cryotherapy
Clinical trials

I am not sure which one is the best or the most effective, cause the efficacy is always individual. Professional advice from doctors is the best.
