Prostate cancer

I was diagnosed with postate cancer last month. The gleason score is 6 and PSA is 7 (it was 4 two months back and 2.9 eight months back). I consulted two doctors - one local and one in Johns Hopkin hospital. Both said that I have the option of radiation or surgery. Any thoughts or recommendations on the treatment option and recommendation on the doctor? Dr Walsh at Johns Hopkin hospital does not do surgeries any more.

Thanks

Re: Prostate cancer

You also have the option of Active Surveillance. Take your time before making any decision.
