Thursday, 23rd May 2019
New guidelines released last week for doctors in England and Wales will encourage active surveillance for men with low risk cancer, which can help delay or avoid treatment side effects. Read our article for details on the other changes being introduced and how we're helping doctors to advise men about treatment options.
As NICE release updated guidelines to endorse active surveillance alongside surgery and radiotherapy as treatment options, PCUK publish advice for doctors on how to help men feel confident in making the choice.
