We’re With You
at Every Step

We have the expertise and resources to help you navigate the diagnosis, risks and treatment of prostate cancer. You’ll always have the compassionate support you deserve.

After lung cancer, prostate cancer is the leading cause of cancer death among men, with one in seven American men being diagnosed in their lifetime. The good news is, it’s also one of the most treatable forms of cancer. The prostate program at AdventHealth Gordon, formerly Gordon Hospital, is committed to superior cancer care, from early detection to clinical trials that may one day hold the key to curing urological cancers.

Our team brings together the country's leading experts in the field to diagnose and treat these types of cancers. An individual treatment plan will be created that is personalized to you. Most of all, we help you to live life to the fullest, providing you with counseling, mentoring and support during and after your medical treatment.

  • Blood in the urine or semen  
  • Pain in the hips, back, chest or other areas from cancer that has spread 
  • Problems urinating 
  • Weakness or numbness in the legs or feet, or loss of bladder/bowel control from cancer pressing on the spinal cord
