expectant management

also called active surveillance or watchful waiting. In some cases of prostate cancer, close monitoring that is done instead of starting active treatment right away. This may be a reasonable choice for older men with small tumors that might grow very slowly, allowing them to avoid or delay the side effects from treatment. Because the man is being watched carefully, changes are noted quickly, and treatment can be started right away if needed.
