YOU ARE NOT ALONE
Review of Part 3
Life expectancy is the number of years you will
likely live.
Risk groups for recurrence can be used to start
talking about initial treatment options.
Nomograms predict one person’s risk better than
risk groups and should be used to better plan
treatment.
Imaging tests may be used to see if the cancer has
spread beyond the prostate.
A fine-needle aspiration removes tissue samples
so that the presence of cancer can be confirmed.
