Changing Distribution, Size and Grade of Prostate Cancer: Whole-Mount Prostatectomy Analysis – Summary:

M. Scott Lucia, MD, summarizes the changes in the clinical management of prostate cancer since 1990, specifically regarding PSA screening, active surveillance, targeted focal therapy, and pathology grading practices. Also, he analyzes whole-mount prostatectomy data from the past 16 years that has shown increasingly higher grade and volume tumors. He then discusses whether or not this is exclusively due to patient selection and over-grading.
