Clinically detected carcinoma of the prostate treated by radical prostatectomy in a 29-year-old man.


Journal Article

Prostate cancer is rare in young adults and when clinically detected it has been invariably locally or distantly advanced, undifferentiated and exhibiting aggressive behavior. To our knowledge no previous report documents clinically detected and localized disease amenable to curative surgery in a young adult. We report on a 29-year-old man with clinically detected, moderately differentiated adenocarcinoma of the prostate who was treated by nerve sparing radical retropubic prostatectomy. The patient was disease-free and morbidity-free 30 months after treatment.
