Guidelines for follow-up of patients with prostate carcinoma

- The follow-up investigation of patients with prostate cancer is mainly conducted on the basis of complaints, serum prostate-specific antigen and digital rectal examination.

- Other investigations, such as bone scintigraphy, are only performed on indication.

- The frequency and duration of the follow-up investigation, as well as the consequences of the findings during this, depend on the stage of the disease, the patient's wishes and the possibilities of additional treatment.
