Outcomes following negative prostate biopsy for patients with persistent disease after radiotherapy for prostate cancer
Hernia, Diaphragmatic, Traumatic
Patients with PSA recurrence and a negative post-radiation biopsy have a high chance of persistent local disease, progression, and death from prostate cancer. Furthermore, an initial negative biopsy does not rule-out local recurrence. Patients with biochemical recurrence after radiotherapy for prostate cancer need to be evaluated earlier for local recurrence.
