Men with low-risk prostate cancer taking conservative approach to treatment

NBC - Men with low risk prostate cancer are taking a more conservative approach to treatment.

In 2010, doctors began advocating watchful waiting rather than radiation or surgery for low-risk prostate cancer.

Since then -- the use of that approach has increased by 28-percent and is becoming the most common treatment method.

Surgery to remove the prostate declined in men with low-risk disease but increased among those with more aggressive cancer.
