The authors compared the preoperative, postoperative PSA values and the values measured in 1993 of 19 prostate cancer patients has been operated radically between 1986-91. The preoperative average values raised parallel with the stage of the diseases (local, local advanced, metastatic lymph nodes). Patients having high preoperative PSA level, besides normal postoperative concentration, have a big chance for progression. The predictive value of the normal PSA level measured 3-4 weeks after the operation is low, but the high postoperative PSA level is a very bed prognostic sign.
