There are a number of prostate cancer treatments to consider. Each type brings different benefits and risks so it’s important to be informed and make a decision based on what’s best for you. The most significant disadvantages revolve around potential side effects of the chosen option. Talk to your doctor about advice on treatments and lifestyle changes.
By choosing active surveillance, you are delaying or avoiding altogether the immediate and life-changing side effects of surgery, radiation therapy or other treatments.
