How is low-grade prostate cancer treated?

When we do a biopsy of the prostate and the result is cancer, in over 50 percent of cases, the grade of the cancer is typically low. In these men, we begin an active surveillance program that usually avoids the need for surgery or other invasive treatments. For many men with low grade prostate cancer, surgery and other forms of treatment may be avoided by diligent, increased surveillance.
