Cancer of the Prostate and Kidney pp Cite as. Carcinoma of the prostate is a slowly progressive disease which may be managed in many different ways. Treatment alternatives include no treatment, surgery, irradiation, endocrine therapy and cytotoxic chemotherapy. Diagnosis is easily achieved by rectal examination and biopsy, and scanning techniques are readily available for accurate clinical staging. The common osteosclerotic metastases are not, however, easily assessed for progression or regression and other marker lesions suitable for accurate measurement do not often occur, even in advanced progressive disease. Therefore a good biological tumour marker would be invaluable to aid the clinician monitor disease progression and the response to treatment and to assess new hormonal and chemotherapeutic regimes in phase II clinical trials.
