Many controversies surround the management of prostate cancer to include screening practices, diagnosis, and treatment options. The lack of randomized prospective studies comparing the various definitive treatment modalities currently available occasionally can make the decision process challenging for patients and their providers. In this setting of controversy, the cost of treating clinically localized prostate cancer is significant. In the face of these unanswered questions, this article summarizes some important principles regarding the diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer. This review is limited to the diagnosis and management of clinically localized disease.
