I'd still replace any RG-59 just to be on the safe side. It's really not that expensive to do so. 25 feet will run you about $11.

If by 'on the safe side' you mean replace a working cable with another working cable, sure. But I'm not going to waste my time.

By "on the safe side" I mean replacing a cable that was never designed to carry the higher frequencies that you are running over it with one that is.

RG59 might be fine unless it is a very long run.
I have an original RG59 run in my condo from thirty years ago. If I use it I can still view the same digital content (and run MoCA on it) as with the RG6 runs I put in. But there is certainly more signal loss with the RG59 which will come into play with a longer run or a weak channel.
