Study shows that active surveillance in men with intermediate prostate cancer has a linkage with a decreased survival rate

The study showed that there is a three times greater risk of dying from the cancer when watchful surveillance is the treatment of intermediate prostate cancer as compared to men with low risk prostate cancer.
