abstract

  • The cancer-specific mortality rate for patients with stage A2 and B tumors and negative nodes compares favorably with other series of patients treated with radiation therapy and > or = 15 years' follow-up evaluation. While local progression rates are high and associated with a substantial risk of prostate cancer death, many patients live with the disease and ultimately die of causes other than prostate cancer.
