"I was just told I have non-aggressive prostate cancer. My doctor has told me it’s very, very slow growing. But at this point I am confused. I feel right now all I want to do is keep a watchful eye and do follow ups. I was also told that people who have this type of cancer can out live the disease. I am trying to make sure I don't jump into any hasty decisions. I have an appointment with the doctor to discuss my options, but I am really leaning toward just being patient and watching it. I am 65 years old and my PSA has been right around 4.40 to 5."
