Editor's preface
Mot du rédacteur en chef

Prostate cancer raises many questions about "odds": What are the odds of getting it? Is early intervention a better bet than "watchful waiting"? Is androgen ablation worth it? The first article in our new Clinical Basics series interprets the epidemiology and translates it into actual risks (pages 491 and 509).
