In most cases, a new diagnosis of prostate cancer doesn’t need to be treated (or even screened in the first place.) However, there are some prostate cancers that left untreated can be dangerous. Detecting and treating these aggressive tumors is an evolving area in oncology, and one that I spend a great deal of time in my practice counseling patients on their many state of the art options.
In this “Living Well” segment, I briefly discuss some of these technologies and tests. I also address what to do when cancer returns, the importance of integrative oncology, getting second opinions and not rushing into treatment before educating yourself on all of your options.
