Tall- that is great info (you are a par golfer-ha/ha), Dr. Bahn (Dr. Lee's former protege' at Crittenton Hosp. from Michigan has become the master from the original master). In one of the PCRI videos Bahn followed a guy whom did his own W.W./A.S and the color doppler clearly showed the areas of increased and new tumor areas, which lead to the guys treatment (his waiting period was somewhere like 6+ years, btw).
My brother got Dx around 9 yrs. ago now and with the John Hopkins-Brady Urology parameters of indolent PCa with his Gleason 6, he has only monitored via psa tests and may be due for a better screening, but thus far seems it was safe and the right thing for him to do. His psa back when Dx was only 1.0 which was super low, but psa is not the best indicator as you can see. Probably a good tip is never get to complacent with PCa, it can be a sneeky sob.
In another unique story my friend did ADT3 as his only treatment (psa was 11.0 2 cores positive would be a Gleason 6 by todays standards, this was back in 1996). Per Leibowitz protocol 13 months, then stay on proscar only.....short story update= rebiopsied by Dr. Lee with color doppler guiding and no cancer found. He has all these years of everything working (he claims) and could still do about any PCa treatment, if and when he decides. Back in his day doing ADT3 as primary treatment was very bravish to do.....he is a very happy camper. I love happy stories.....
