Abstract

Background: The progress of the prostate-specific antigen (PSA) level after radical prostatectomy is observed for a patient in order to extract information about the mode of tumor cell growth. Although PSA values are determined routinely to find the doubling time of the prostate marker, to our knowledge, this analysis is the first in the literature.
