    Article, Communication - En anglais

    Detection and treatment of early stage prostate cancer. Seminar. USA, 1993/12.

    To learn about the natural history of untreated early stage prostatic cancer (stage T0-2NXM0) progression-free, disease specific, overall survival and the need for palliative care were evaluated in a population-based and regionally well defined cohort from Sweden.

    Complete followup, with a mean observation of 12.5 years, was achieved in 223 consecutively diagnosed, eligible patients (98%) of all ages.

    Patients with progression were hormonally treated (orchiectomy or estrogens) if they had symptoms.

    After a mean of 12.5 years only 23 patients (10%) had died of prostate cancer and 125 of 148 deaths (84%) were of other causes.
