More men with low-risk prostate cancer are forgoing aggressive treatment
TUESDAY, May 15, 2018 (The Washington Post) — American doctors are successfully persuading increasing numbers of men with low-risk prostate cancer to reject immediate surgery and radiation in favor of surveillance, a trend that is sparing men’s sexual health without increasing their risk of death.

The latest evidence that more men are postponing aggressive therapy unless their symptoms worsen came in a large study published Tuesday that involved more than 125,000 veterans diagnosed with nonaggressive prostate cancer between 2005 and 2015.
