PURPOSE We determined the biochemical failure rate in patients 60 years and younger, and older than 60 years old who were treated with external beam radiation for localized prostate cancer or locally advanced prostate cancer. We also evaluated prognostic factors in the 2 age groups. MATERIALS AND METHODS We reviewed the medical records of 964 patients who received full dose radiotherapy as the only treatment for prostate cancer. Followup prostate specific antigen was measured 3 to 6 months… CONTINUE READING
