A paper to compare the survival outcomes of patients treated with surgery or radiotherapy for prostate cancer. Survival from prostate cancer is greater in men with localised disease treated with surgery rather than radiotherapy. High quality evidence comparing cancer outcomes after surgery and radiotherapy in men with prostate cancer is lacking. This observational study suggests that surgery might offer benefit over radiotherapy for most men with clinically localised prostate cancer.
