NCCN Guidelines for Patients


Prostate Cancer, Version 1.2016


Treatment guide: Monitoring

Part 6 is a guide to monitoring after

initial treatment. You can learn about

the ways to reduce some of the health

risks of ADT. Monitoring also includes

assessing if initial treatment was

successful. The tests used to assess

treatment results are listed. If local

treatments don’t succeed in treating

the cancer, the next treatments you

can receive are explained.

This information is taken from the

treatment guidelines written by NCCN

experts for doctors who treat prostate

cancer. Your doctors may suggest

other treatments than those listed

in Part 6 based on your health and

personal wishes.
