Can Transurethral prostatectomy (TURP) treat prostate cancer?

Can Transurethral prostatectomy be used to treat prostate cancer?

Update to this question and coming from my Mayo surgical team: "We do not use transurethral prostatectomy for treatment of prostate cancer as this does not treat the entire prostate."
