Cooperberg, M.D., M.P.H., associate professor and Epidemiology & Biostatistics Helen Diller Family Chair in Urology at UCSF, said that he looks at the details: What is the patient's Gleason score, prior treatments and other aggressive characteristics of the disease?

Patients and physicians should discuss risks, treatment side effects and the cancer's aggressiveness when deciding when it is the right time to start, says Cooperberg.
