Modern Healthcare

Men who underwent surgery or radiation therapy for treatment of prostate cancer experienced no significant differences in patient-reported outcomes at 15 years post-diagnosis, according to a newly published study in the New England Journal of Medicine. The study, which assessed health status in more than 1,600 men with prostate cancer, showed similar rates of incontinence and sexual dysfunction at the 15-year mark, despite differing rates at two years and five years post-diagnosis among surgery and radiation therapy patients.
