  • Adenocarcinoma, Clinically Localized Disease, Low Risk, Surveillance Candidate:

Notes: PSA every 3-6 months, DRE every 6-12 months and rebiopsy (12 core) every 12-24 months. May rebiopsy if indicated by new DRE finding or PSA increase. Institute definitive therapy at disease progression.

Surveillance Notes Post Definitive Treatment Surveillance: Q3 months x 1-2 years exam with PSA. Then, if no PSA-recurrence*, q6 months x 5 years. Then, if no PSA-recurrence*, yearly. No imaging required. *PSA recurrent defined as 2 ng/mL above nadir.

  • Adenocarcinoma, Clinically Localized Disease, Intermediate Risk, Radiation Candidate:

Level 1 evidence supports radiation + ADT. If a patient or physician feels ADT is not the preferred option, radiation alone with dose escalation can be considered.

Standard overview example: •Radiation + Neoadjuvant/Concurrent/Adjuvant LHRH Agonist Starting 2 - 4 Months Prior to Starting Radiation and Continuing for a Total of 6 Months (+/- Nonsteroidal Antiandrogen During XRT)

A cycle is every 12 weeks: •Leuprolide acetate depot 22.5 mg - every 12 weeks - intramuscularly every 12 weeks Daily: •Bicalutamide 50 mg - once a day - orally once a day
