Management of Localized Adenocarcinoma of the Prostate
Appropriate management of the patient with localized adenocarcinoma of the prostate remains a controversial topic for various reasons. First, prostatic cancer occurs in an age group in which many other diseases affect the health of the host. Second, the biologic hazard presented by adenocarcinoma of the prostate can be exceedingly variable. This variability is dependent not simply on host factors, such as age and state of health, but also on factors indigenous to the tumor, such as degree of differentiation and metastatic potential. Finally, the majority of studies of the efficacy of one treatment modality versus another have consisted of uncontrolled analyses of patient survival comparative to historical controls alone; few randomized studies of treatment efficacy have been conducted.
