New 2017 inputs in SIOG guidelines for prostate cancer elderly patients management

Owing to increased life expectancy, the management of prostate cancer in men over 70 years represents an important public health concern and a major challenge for the future. The task force undertook to develop a proposal of recommendations in this population, both for localized and metastatic disease, and including aspects such as screening, staging, surgery, radiotherapy, hormonotherapy, chemotherapy, and use of bisphosphonates. 

These new guidelines will give an update on metastatic prostate cancer based on 2016 ESMO; 2017 GU-ASCO; 2017 ASCO annual meetings and new important published studies:

  1. Randomized trials
  2. trials aimed to define treatments sequences and experimental data
  3. New knowledge on surgical & focal treatments and surveillance
  4. New knowledge on radiotherapy
