Prostate Cancer: Active Surveillance instead of Surgery & Radiation | Active Surveillance

Prostate cancer does not always require immediate treatment such as surgery or radiotherapy. Here you will learn in which cases active surveillance of prostate cancer makes sense as a strategy. Dr. Stephan Neubauer from the West German Prostate Center at the KLINIK am RING - Cologne explains in this med.clip for whom active surveillance is suitable and how active surveillance for prostate cancer works. Learn about criteria such as PSA value, Gleason Score and prostate volume, which provide information on whether active surveillance can be considered as an alternative to surgery or radiation of the prostate carcinoma.
