RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Giving chemotherapy after surgery may kill more tumor cells.
PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of mitoxantrone given after surgery in treating patients who have prostate cancer that is at high risk for recurrence.
