Prostate cancer life expectancy - Despite recent advances in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer, cancer rates and the number of deaths from cancer continue to increase. In approximately one half of persons diagnosed with cancer, active treatment becomes ineffective at a certain point. At this point physicians are expected to predict the patient's life expectancy based on the clinical estimation of survival. This step becomes significant because of the difficulties that follow late referral or absence of referral to palliative care programs. Vigano and colleagues studied the accuracy of the clinical estimate of survival in patients who were seen at the onset of their terminal phase.
