Patients Aged More Than 70 Had More Aggressive Prostate Cancers and Higher Risk of Biochemical Recurrence in Korea
Patients aged 70 years or older had a higher risk of advanced prostate cancer and shorter
BCR-free survival than younger ones. Definite treatment of clinically localized prostate
cancer should be actively considered in well-selected healthy patients older than 70 years.
Observational Model: Case Control, Time Perspective: Retrospective
