OBJECTIVE Evaluate pathology findings after RP in our prospective AS cohort. DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS All men participated in the Prostate Cancer Research International: Active Surveillance (PRIAS) study. Eligible men were initially diagnosed with low-risk PCa (clinical stage ≤ T2, prostate-specific antigen [PSA] ≤ 10… CONTINUE READING
