Data from three academic institutions were used to develop a model to predict pathologic stage in a group of men with clinically localized prostate cancer. The model combined serum prostate-specific antigen (PSA) level, clinical stage, and Gleason score. The data were used to generate nomograms that present the probability of a patient having organ-confined cancer, isolated capsular penetration, seminal vesicle involvement, or pelvic lymph node involvement.

When used alone, prostate-specific antigen (PSA) is not sufficiently sensitive or specific to consider it an ideal tool for the early detection or staging of prostate cancer. To optimize the use of PSA, the concepts of PSA velocity,
