Active Surveillance

This protocol should only be undertaken under the monitoring of your doctor. There are situations, based on the individual patient, when a non-aggressive approach to treating the disease is best recommended. The most definitive clinical research has shown that men with less than a 10 year life expectancy and low-volume tumors are the best candidates for aggressive monitoring; all other patients are encouraged to seek a more curative approach. Discuss your particular disease condition with your doctor if you are contemplating this method.
