OBJECTIVES Several investigators have reported that African-American men with clinically localized prostate cancer have poorer survival than do white men. In addition, prostate cancer in African-American men is commonly diagnosed at a more advanced stage of disease. Is race or ethnicity predictive of outcome of clinically localized prostate cancer? It has been reported that the presence of positive surgical margins significantly influences time to progression independently of other prognostic… CONTINUE READING
