Does prostate cancer need to be treated?
For most men, the answer may be NO!
- 232,000 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in the US this year.
- Most will be treated, either with surgery or radiation.
- Many will be left incontinent by their treatments, many more will be rendered permanently impotent.
- Most of these men will have been diagnosed with what are known as "Gleason 6" cancers.
- Most Gleason 6 cancers don't need to be treated at all.
