Hoping to provide new data for treatment and follow-up protocols, the study established the risk of recurrence at 5 years was equal to or higher than the risk of recurrence after 3 years. Marcus L. Jamil, MD, from the Vattikuti Urology Institute at the Henry Ford Health System in Detroit, hopes these results will encourage health providers to continue monitoring beyond 5 years.
