There is excellent information within this site along with great and supportive folks that post here. There are also many other sites and support groups for you during this journey to assist you with what to do with your newly diagnosed Prostate Cancer. But from my perspective, You must make the decision that is right for you--not your doctor.
Here is another one:

Things to Remember
Many men with prostate cancer have shared their advice to help other men who are newly diagnosed:
• There are treatment options--be sure to know them all.
• Treatments and medical procedures have improved over the past 10 years.
• You must make the decision that is right for you--not your doctor.
• Seek the opinions of several different doctors since some may only recommend the option they know the most about.
• Take the time you need to research your options before making your decision. There's usually no need to rush.
• Your spouse or partner has an important role in your decision and will be affected by your choice. Try to be open and honest with each other about your concerns.
• Organizations and support groups can help you learn more about what others in your situation are doing for their prostate cancer.
• It is possible to live a full life after prostate cancer.
