Prostatic carcinoma: Reflections on its natural history, diagnosis, and therapy

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The natural history of prostatic cancer is reviewed in brief with emphasis on transitions in cellular differentiation. Diagnostic features are appraised in conjunction with prognostication of the clinical course. Radical prostatectomy is considered the best form of treatment for the isolated prostatic nodule with preserved cellular differentiation. Endocrine therapy should be withheld until manifestations of cancer spread are evident.
