Changes in benign tissues next to prostate tumors may provide an early warning for patients at higher risk for biochemical recurrence after a radical prostatectomy, a new study shows. If the preliminary findings are confirmed, the scientists recommend combining the benign-field features with tumor features extracted from patient’s pathology images and Gleason scoring, to further improve the prediction of recurrence.
