Prostate cancer develops slowly and is frequently diagnosed in elderly men, and its treatments are associated with adverse effects on the urinary and sexual function of patients [1]. Radical prostatectomy (RP) may reduce the disease-specifi c mortality of patients with prostate cancer, although this approach has been shown to have long-term negative complications with no improvement in overall patient survival [2]. Chen et al. [3], recommended that longitudinal measurement of patients' reported outcomes is crucial because of the time-dependent nature of symptom development after treatment.
