Adam Scott Feldman, MD, MPH, urologist at Massachusetts General Hospital, assistant professor of surgery, Harvard Medical School, discusses men with prostate cancer receiving treatment after active surveillance.

In a study investigating active surveillance, pathologic progression was the main reason that men progressed to treatment, states Feldman. On a future biopsy, these men had an increased volume of disease or an increase of Gleason score.

Other reasons men progressed to treatment included a higher prostate-specific antigen (PSA) density, which correlates with higher volume of disease, explains Feldman.
