This study concern a prospective cohort pf patients with latent prostate cancer. We study the specific survival at 10 years of patients who accept an active control.Patients inclusion are realized in 2 stages:

  • patient with inclusion criteria (PSA < 10 ng/ml, clinical stage T1c or T2a, Gleason < or = 6) are registered if they accept a second prostate biopsy in a 3 months delay
  • after analyse of second biopsy in central laboratory and confirmation of latent prostate biopsy, patients are included if they accept active control Included patients will have 1 biopsy by years the first two years and then 1 biopsy each 2 years during 8 years.

If progression of cancer happens during the 10 years control, active control will be stopped and patient will be treated by surgery and chemotherapy.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Evaluates specific survival to 10 years [ Time Frame: 10 years ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To evaluate acceptation of 2nd biopsy to confirm latent cancer [ Time Frame: 10 years ]
  • To evaluate global survival of patient in control [ Time Frame: 10 years ]
  • To evaluate the survival of patient with a secondary active treatment after a control period [ Time Frame: 10 years ]
  • To evaluate delay to secondary treatment after a period control [ Time Frame: 10 years ]
  • To evaluate survival rate without biological or clinical progression of cancer [ Time Frame: 10 years ]
  • To evaluate quality of life [ Time Frame: 10 years ]
