New Guidelines for Care of Advanced Prostate Cancer

The American Urological Association (AUA), American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO), and Society of Urologic Oncology (SUO) have released new guidelines for the diagnosis and treatment of advanced prostate cancer, developed by a panel of experts. In addition to their own expertise and experience, panel members assessed data from 264 prostate cancer studies in developing these recommendations for clinical practice.

In total, the panel released 38 individual guidelines, grouped into six overarching themes. These are early evaluation and counseling, recurrence without metastatic disease (local treatment exhausted), metastatic hormone-sensitive cancer, non-metastatic castration-resistant disease, metastatic castration-resistant cancer, and bone health.
