Abstract: Prostate cancer is the leading cause of morbidity and mortality amongst Australian men, with more men being diagnosed with low-risk disease due to individualised opportunistic screening. To minimise side effects of treatment, active surveillance (AS) has been established as a feasible management option intent for curative treatment of disease progression.
