Oncologist Questions Prostate Cancer

How will my treatment ensure that my prostrate cancer doesn’t progress?

I have been diagnosed with prostrate cancer and my treatment for it has started. How will I be monitored under my treatment to ensure that the cancer does not spread?

I assume that you are being treated with radiation? Do you know the stage and aggressiveness of your cancer (as this is important as it relates to "monitoring")? Generally speaking, for unfavorable or high-risk prostate cancer, I recommend quarterly PSA tests for 2 years and then twice annually thereafter.
