Andrew J. Stephenson, MD, director for the Center of Urologic Oncology at the Cleveland Clinic discusses urinary, bowel, and sexual function following the management of localized prostate cancer.

Although there are many ways to achieve high cure rates for patients with prostate cancer, there are still potential impacts on the quality of life, states Stephenson.

Active surveillance has been used as a treatment strategy to differ treatment and therefore the side effects of treatment, to give patients the highest likelihood that they will preserve their quality of life.
