Men with clinically localized prostate cancer have many options.

This decision aid is for you only if you have been diagnosed with clinically localized prostate cancer. The information in this decision aid will prepare you to talk with your doctor about your options for treating or monitoring your cancer.

The information in this decision aid is presented in five sections. Each new section builds on the last, so you must view the pages in order.

  • To go to the next page, click the "Next" button located in the menu bar above or at the bottom right corner of the page.
  • You can always click the "Prev" button or click on a section tab to review pages in a section you have already seen.

At the top of each page are tabs that link to each of the sections of this decision aid. These tabs highlight the sections you have viewed and show you how much information is left to see.
