A proposal of a new nomogram for predicting upstaging in contemporary D’Amico low-risk prostate cancer patients
PurposeUnfavorable prostate cancer (PCa) disease at final pathology affects at least 10 % of D’Amico low-risk patients. Thus, conservative therapies including active surveillance may be wrongfullyExpand

Obesity paradox in prostate cancer: increased body mass index was associated with decreased risk of metastases after surgery in 13,667 patients
IntroductionObesity might negatively affect prostate cancer (PCa) outcomes. However, evidence according to the associations between obesity and metastases-free survival after radical prostatectomyExpand
