Figure 2Radical Prostatectomy Versus Expectant Management

Results are from a large, randomized controlled trial of men diagnosed between 1989 and 1999. Average age at diagnosis was 65 years, average Gleason score 5–6, and average PSA 13 ng/mL. Most cancers were not diagnosed by PSA testing. Men in both groups who had local progression received hormonal therapy. (N Engl J Med 2005;352:1977–84.)
