Prognostic comparison between radical prostatectomy and radiotherapy in prostate cancer patients at different stages and ages

Relationship between age and hazard ratio of RT versus RP for patients with prostate cancer. (A) All groups in SEER. (B) All groups in PLCO. (C) Stage I group in SEER. (D) Stage II group in SEER. (E) Stage III group in SEER. (F) Stage IV group in SEER. SEER, Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results; PLCO, the Prostate, Lung, Colorectal, and Ovarian. The solid lines are multivariable adjusted hazard ratios. The shaded areas are the 95% confidence intervals. The dotted lines are coordinate 1 on the vertical axis.
