Cytological Findings in Conservative Treatment of Prostatic Cancer

Treatment response in the case of prostatic cancer may sometimes be difficult to assess. It should be emphasised that response criteria must be objective, quickly carried out, easily repeatable and with a favourable cost-benefit ratio. On the other hand, a precise evaluation of cancer patients on conservative treatment is well-recognised to be important in order to decide in good time whether current therapy should be continued or modified.
