Prostate Cancer Surgery Fails to Cut Death Rate in Study
[link to www.bloomberg.com]

The U.S.-funded study assigned 731 men across the country with early prostate cancer to have the gland surgically removed or be observed without any attempt at curative treatment. Ten years later, 47 percent of men in the surgery group had died, mostly from other diseases, versus 49.9 percent who were just watched, results published today in the New England Journal of Medicine found. The difference wasn’t statistically meaningful.

The study is certain to fuel the debate over whether doctors are aggressively treating prostate cancer in men who aren’t likely to die from it, causing side effects such as incontinence and impotence.
