Probability of lymph node involvement in men with prostate cancer
Throughout the last three decades, a lot of prediction tools were produced to predict the chance of lymph node involvement in prostate cancer patients. Nearly all prediction tools used pre-operative PSA, gleason score and clinical T-stage as inputvariables. More recent models also use amount of biopsy cores taken and percentage or amount of positive/negative biopsy cores.
