Prostate cancer: diagnosis, treatment, and experience at one tertiary-care military medical center, 1989 and 1994.
Prostate cancer is a significant health care problem in this country. With an aging population of men, increased public awareness, and use of prostate-specific antigen screening programs, this disease will continue to increase in incidence. This paper addresses the recent dramatically increased incidence and stage migration to earlier disease, the implications of these trends, and specific comparisons about the evolving therapies between 1989 and 1994 at Walter Reed Army Medical Center. A basic review of diagnosis and treatment options are outlined for use by the non-urologist. New and exciting developments in the field are also discussed.
