Dr. Mark Scholz discussed the factors and testing that should be considered to properly stage prostate cancer. He discussed the treatment options of surgery, IMRT, seeds, cryotherapy, testosterone blockade, chemotherapy, and active surveillance, pointing out their advantages and disadvantages. When properly monitored, forgoing immediate treatment is rapidly gaining acceptance as a bona fide option.

Men become motivated to implement positive dietary and lifestyle changes that may alter the course of the disease. For more on prostate cancer, see PCRI.org
