Therefore, understanding these factors and their impact on cancer process can help in timely treatment of the disease. The purpose of this study was to investigate the factors of age of admission time and Gleason score on changing status of elderly patients with prostate cancer in Imam Khomeini Hospital in Tehran.
materials and methods:
The method of this study is a historical cohort. The data were from 125 prostate cancer patients who referred to Imam Khomeini Hospital from 2004 to 2018, and were diagnosed as a physician, underwent radical prostatectomy. After surgery, they were treated in positions Different (Radiation Therapy, Hormone Therapy, and Death). Factors influencing age of acceptance time and Gleason score on transition between states were tested using multi-state model, with R.5.0 software.
Cancer patients are considered to have an average age of 72/12 (SD = 7.32) years. According to the obtained values, the median of the patients who performed the surgery and were treated, 4.5 years in localized relapse status, 2 years in a distant recurrence and 6.6 years in detention status As. Regarding the possibility of transfusion, the patients undergoing surgery with 17% chance of being metastatic and receiving treatment for hormone replacement therapy, with a probability of 8.8%, received topical relapse and accepted radiotherapy treatment. And also with probability of% 8 death events. The results of this study showed that the Gleason variables were not significantly altered in the state of change, but the age variable in the transmission of surgical status to the state of hormone therapy was significant.

According to the results, it was found that Gleason score did not affect the transition between the considered conditions and age was significant only in the transition from surgery to hormone therapy. Therefore, in elderly patients undergoing surgery, the risk of metastasis increases with age.
