abstract

  • Black men with clinical stage T1-T2 prostate cancer who underwent radical prostatectomy had significantly higher serum PSA and PSA density than similarly treated white men. However, race appears to have no independent impact on pathological findings or disease recurrence in men with clinically localized prostate cancer treated with radical prostatectomy when the effects of differences in serum PSA are controlled.
