Abstract

Data from well-designed, prospective clinical trials are lacking to support treatment of primary tumor in men diagnosed with metastatic prostate cancer. However, a growing body of evidence suggests that treatment of the primary tumor may enhance cancer control and survival in some men. This evidence is examined and recommendations are made for identifying patients with metastatic prostate cancer who may benefit from definitive treatment of the prostate tumor.
