Abstract

Matta et al. report that men with prostate cancer who underwent surgery or radiotherapy, but not active surveillance, had greater odds of receiving antidepressants than controls. However, methodological limitations preclude the interpretation of a psychological benefit for men on active surveillance. Screening for distress and referral to evidence-based intervention should be a priority.
