Prostate Cancer: Assorted Mortality Statistics - John Davis

E. David Crawford of the University of Colorado hosts a discussion with John Davis from MD Anderson Cancer Center on prostate cancer mortality rate in which the U.S. Services Preventive Task Force (USPSTF) claimed was 1 in 200 following radical prostatectomy (RP).  Dr. Davis took a closer look at these statistics through a unique database titled, Premier Perspective Database and found that the mortality rate was 1 in 1,500 and not 1 in 200 as reported by the USPSTF.  The Premier Perspective Database showed a 30 day mortality rate after RP is better in the 2010’s than in the 1990’s.
