Active Monitoring of Localized Prostate Cancer Found to Reduce Risk of Life-Altering Complications

A new study has found that men who actively monitored their low- to intermediate-risk prostate tumors had a lower risk of life-altering complications such as incontinence and erectile dysfunction, compared to those who underwent surgery or radiation. The study followed 8,000 men over 15 years, and showed that active monitoring is a safe and effective option for men with localized prostate cancer. However, decisions should be made on an individual basis.
