Advances in high-risk localized prostate cancer: Staging and management.

Nearly 15% of individuals with localized prostate cancer are identified as high risk for recurrence and progression of the disease, which is why the correct staging is vital for the definition of correct treatment-also developing novel therapeutic strategies to find a balance between getting better outcomes without sacrificing the quality of life (QoL). In this narrative review, we introduced the current standards of staging and primary treatment of high-risk localized prostate cancer (PCa), based on international guidelines and arguments in the debate, under the light of the most recent literature. It brings essential tools such as PSMA PET/CT and different nomograms (Briganti. MSKCC, Gandaglia) for accurate staging and selecting wisely the definitive therapy. Even though there is a broad discussion over the best local treatment in curative-intent treatment, it looks more important to define which patient profile would adapt correctly to every different treatment, highlighting the benefits and superior outcomes with multimodal treatment.
