Watchful waiting for prostate cancer

UroToday – European Urology – Watching the Face of Janus- Active Surveillance as a Strategy to Reduce Overtreatment for Localised Prostate Cancer
A good abstract by Swedish urologists that addresses many of the issues for watchful waiting.
It points out that the best candidates have a small amount of gleason 6 cancer. Most men did well for several years with this option.
These people should have repeat biopsies at intervals and may have a negative psychological impact from choosing this therapy.
I always discuss watchful waiting as a possible therapy with newly diagnosed cancer.
