About 9 out of 10 men with prostate cancer have cancer that has not spread outside the prostate gland. That means it is localized prostate cancer.
Most men with localized prostate cancer survive their cancer. This is true with watchful waiting or any active treatment.
Research can’t tell us yet which option is best for localized prostate cancer. Each man will have to decide based on what he thinks about the benefits and risks.
Men who have prostate surgery are more likely to survive their cancer than men who use watchful waiting.
Prostate cancer treatments can cause long-lasting sexual, urinary, and bowel problems.
Hospitals and surgeons that do more prostate surgeries have better results.
