Active Surveillance

For some cancers that develop slowly, or in circumstances where a patient’s age and medical history play a role, active surveillance or watchful waiting may be your best option.

Active surveillance means delaying a course of treatment for your cancer, while having your physician monitor and track any progress your cancer may be making. The benefit of watchful waiting is that there are no intrusive treatments involved, however there could be a risk of the cancer spreading, so this option should be carefully evaluated and discussed with your doctor.

To find a physician, call 866-CENTRA7.
