Gather opinions.: The many options for treatment & active surveillance for prostate cancer can be overwhelming to face. First find a urologist you are comfortable with; who can assess your goals, life expectancy, & cancer parameters to help you come to a decision. You have time to find good radiation oncologists as well for an opinion on non-surgical therapies. I wish you well; let us know if you'd like more info.

Low risk: Depending on your psa and biopsy facts, gleason 6 cancer can meet the criteria for very low risk prostate cancer. Go to the nccn.Org website for a detailed outline of options, given your age, monitoring may be an excellent option...Ask all your docs who owns the radiation machine if they send you for radiation consult.

Yes: The old pennsylvania dutch adage is true: "we grow too soon old and too late smart." we are generally more impulsive when we're young, and males are generally more impulsive than females. Women are more cautious and more apt to stop something before it becomes habitual (other than shoes, of course).
