The article reports on the study conducted by the researchers from Martini-Clinic Prostate Cancer Center in Hamburg, Germany on patients with high-risk prostate cancer (PCa). It mentions that complete surgical resection and biochemical recurrence (BCR) and metastases-free survival can be achieved in patients. It states that patients should not be denied with radical prostatectomy (RP). It also emphasizes that patients who experienced BCR progressed to metastases.
