Extraprostatic extension into periprostatic fat is a more important determinant of prostate cancer recurrence than an invasive phenotype.
PURPOSE Although micrometastasis development correlates closely with the depth of invasion of many tumor types, it is unclear whether invasion into but not through the prostatic pseudocapsule has aExpand
