Welcome. Pretty much every option is
open to you with such an early prostate cancer detection. Don't rush into anything until you have researched extensively on your choices. I, too, had a low volume, low PSA cancer at age 56. I waited six months before deciding on a treatment. Treatment choice is very individual. Don't let anyone--physician, forum member, friends, etc.--browbeat you into a treatment.
You'll read lots of strong opinions here and get lots of strong support. All the best to you as you begin your prostate cancer journey. You're among friends here.
P.S. Personally, I have since my diagnosis used some of the suggestions in the UCSF prostate cancer diet (mentioned by another poster) , which are also good for overall good health.
