How can we improve outcomes for men diagnosed with prostate cancer?

Although prostate cancer is the most common cancer among men in the U.S., many men have indolent tumors that are unlikely to cause death in a man’s lifetime. Determining which prostate tumors are likely to lead to death is of critical clinical importance to prevent unnecessary treatment and unwanted side-effects. Understanding factors related to disease etiology and progression and developing risk models is essential for personalized medicine and developing better treatment strategies.
