To the Editor: The results reported by Dr Jha and colleagues1 are similar to our previous findings that among 46 000 male patients treated for cancer in the VA system from 1958 to 1963 there were no significant differences in 5-year relative cancer survival rates for localized disease in 5 solid tumor sites (stomach, colon, rectum, lung, and prostate; bladder cancer was an exception).
