Prostate Cancer Surveillance

For men diagnosed with a small volume of low risk prostate cancer, treatment may not be necessary right away. Some men may never need treatment if the prostate cancer remains low grade. Instead, doctors may recommend close monitoring of the prostate cancer using regular PSA, MRI scans and sometimes biopsies to monitor progression of prostate cancer. If tests show your cancer is progressing, you may opt for curative prostate cancer treatment such as surgery or radiation.
