Hello this is Dr. Salama MD,

Active surveillance is typically reserved for men with a PSA of 6 or below.

Considering your current PSA and intermediate Gleason score, I would not consider you a candidate for active surveillance.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

If not, please don't forget to leave a positive rating as that's the only way I get credit for answering your question.

Thank you!
