there's some new advice for men diagnosed with prostate cancer.

a UCLA study finds older men with less serious forms of prostate cancer ... and who have several other health problems ... may not benefit from surgery or radiation treatment.

that's because these men were much more likely to die of something other than their cancer.

and since treatment for prostate cancer can cause major side effects like erectile dysfunction and incontinence ... experts say older men may want to reconsider ... unless they have a high-risk form of the disease.
