Characteristics of prostate cancer detected in the american cancer society-national prostate cancer detection project.
Detection and treatment of early stage prostate cancer. Seminar. USA, 1993/12.
The American Cancer Society-National Prostate Cancer Detection Project is a prospective, comparative study of a cohort of 2,999 men 55 to 70 years old not suspected on entry of having prostate cancer.
A total of 164 prostate cancers is available from this project for analysis.
A small proportion of tumors detected were advanced in terms of the clinical stage at diagnosis.
Cancer detected by digital rectal examination tended to be more advanced than that found on the basis of only transrectal ultrasound or prostate specific antigen (PSA).
A large proportion of patients received curative therapy involving radical prostatectomy in 67.1% and radiotherapy in 18.3%. Of 103 men presumed to have organ confined disease and treated by prostatectomy 64 (37.9%) actually had locally extensive cancer pathologically.
