Doctors and scientists in urology research at Mayo Clinic are studying new treatment options for prostate cancer and other urologic conditions. Researchers are actively involved in studying long-term outcomes after radical prostatectomy.

For decades, Mayo Clinic has been compiling a database from records of men who have had surgery for prostate cancer. Researchers use this information to monitor outcomes, search for trends and ensure overall quality of care.

Prostate cancer research is conducted in coordination with the Mayo Clinic Cancer Center. The Mayo Clinic Cancer Center receives funding from the National Cancer Institute and is designated as a comprehensive cancer center — recognition for an institution's scientific excellence and multidisciplinary resources focused on cancer prevention, diagnosis and treatment.
