Your PSA, Stage and Gleason Score. These three elements help you determine your risk group. Find and select your Risk Group in the table at the top of the page. This process takes you to the comparing prostate cancer treatments page, where you can select different treatments for prostate cancer and graphically see their effectiveness over time.
