Localized prostate cancer is a heterogeneous disease. However, some diagnostic features are helpful in categorizing patients into risk groups for adverse outcomes, such as pathology, imaging, and genetic profiling. Risk‐specific management options, including active surveillance, can be tailored to individual patients based on their risk profile. Clinicians should discuss the risks and benefits of each of these options with patients for informed decision-making.

Disclosures: Dr. Pow-Sang has disclosed serving as a scientific advisor for Lantheus.
