Aggressive Prostate Cancer


Aggressive prostate cancer is determined by the Gleason score and indicates the potential for the metastasis of prostate cancer to the lymph nodes or bones (prostatic sarcoma). Aggressive cases of prostate cancer usually require aggressive treatment while less aggressive cases may be candidates for watchful waiting or other less aggressive prostate cancer treatments. Advanced prostate cancer usually is aggressive with a high Gleason score and resistant to monotherapy.
