Previous studies suggest that maximum tumor diameter (MTD) is a predictor of recurrence in prostate cancer (PC). This study investigates the prognostic value of MTD for biochemical recurrence (BCR) in patients with PC, after radical prostatectomy (RP), with emphasis on high-risk localized prostate cancer. RP specimens of 542 patients were evaluated with a median follow-up of 39.5 months (range 0.6–150 months). MTD was defined as the largest diameter of the largest tumor; high-risk as ≥T2c or… CONTINUE READING
