Updates for February 2014

In Advice to the Newly Diagnosed we added:
2014 Swedish Study. An observational study of 34,515 men over 15 years (from 1996 to 2010) found that for men with metastatic prostate cancer survival was similar among the surgery and radiation groups; however, for men with non-metastatic prostate cancer survival was better among patients who had surgery relative to those who had had radiation (particularly among younger and healthier men). This is summarized in Fig. 2. [PMID: 24574496] [Full free text].
