Localized Prostate Cancer

The standard set

The ICHOM Standard Set for Localized Prostate Cancer is the result of hard work by a group of leading physicians, measurement experts and patients. It is our recommendation of the outcomes that matter most to patients with Localized Prostate Cancer. We urge all providers around the world to start measuring these outcomes to better understand how to improve the lives of their patients.

1 Recorded via the Clavien-Dindo-Classification

2 Recorded via the Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE), version 4.0

3 Recommend to track via the Expanded Prostate Cancer Index Composite (EPIC)-26
