For several years the treatment of Prostate cancer has been through antibiotherapy, chemotherapy, surgical therapy, and radiation therapy. However, the inefficiency of the antibiotics like trimethoprim-sulfa and fluoroquinolones (to penetrate into the prostate gland) makes treatment of the prostate cancer a little difficult. It also delays the treatment and becomes reason for the invention of various other newer technologies. More often due to the fact that the antibiotics take time to be absorbed by the prostate tissue; higher doses are injected for a longer duration, consequently resulting in more serious side effects.

Regardless of showing results or not, those medication are always associated with adverse effect which makes certain prostate cancer patients recourse to herbal remedies.  Recent researches for finding out new herbal medicines for treating of prostate cancer have led to Rye pollen, a grass plant and medicinal herb.
