Active Surveillance

Active surveillance involves monitoring low risk prostate cancer, with the aim of avoiding or delaying active treatment. If your doctor has recommended you for prostate cancer active surveillance, you can access the APC active surveillance program with a GP referral.

Our team will work closely with your doctors to make sure you are receiving the highest quality care and support services.

For prostate cancer that is not aggressive and has a very low risk of spreading, active surveillance is a treatment option.
