  • A Nightly Routine Could be a Sign of Prostate cancer

    Prostate cancer develops slowly with no symptoms during the early stages. The symptoms show when the cancer has grown large enough to pressurize the urethra. Most men who are diagnosed with prostate cancer never show symptoms but later on as the disease progresses, it affects their sleep at night. According to Cancer Research UK, sleep is the sign of...

  • How Family History Influences the Risk of Prostate Cancer

    It is a known fact that men with a family history of prostate cancer are at a higher risk of developing the disease. A Swedish research team has calculated just how much having a father and/or brother with prostate cancer increases the risk. They also discovered how likely it is for a man with family history of the disease...

  • Anti-Inflammatory Drugs May Help Prevent Prostate Cancer

    Research is increasingly considering over-the-counter medicines like acetaminophen and ibuprofen as protective agents against prostate cancer. Previously, there was an established link between the use of aspirin in reducing the risk of prostate cancer. New data analysis from a population-based study in France reveals that non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) without aspirin reduces chances of developing prostate cancer. During a study...

  • Prostate Cancer and Diet: What are the Odds?

    High fat diet and obesity promote the progression of prostate cancer by amplifying the activity of the cancer genes. A new study found that metabolites from high-fat diet collaborate with the cancer-driving gene MYC to reprogram prostate cancer cells into growing faster. This discovery shows the direct link between obesity and prostate cancer. A study carried out to clarify...

  • Is Weak Urine Flow a Sign of Prostate Cancer?

     The prostate is a gland that assists in producing semen. Prostate cancer usually develops over a couple of years and many people don’t realize they have the disease. Prostate cancer does not show symptoms in its early stages until after the tumor grows large enough to pressurize the urethra. A weak flow of urine is one symptom of prostate...

  • Understanding Prostate Radiation Treatment in Plano TX

    Radiation therapy is one of the most commonly used treatments for prostate cancer. It offers options that are safe and effective in treating prostate cancer. The goals of radiation therapy include relieving symptoms of prostate cancer including pain, controlling the growth of cancer and curing the prostate cancer. Radiation therapy damages cancer cells to the point that they cannot...

  • Six Risk Factors for the Development of Prostate Cancer

    Prostate cancer is seemingly the most common cancer in men in the UK. Because of its slow development, the signs and symptoms may not show when the disease is in the early stages. The symptoms start manifesting when the prostate has grown large and started affecting the urethra. Prostate tumors can be slow growing or aggressive enough to spread...

  • Two Prostate Cancer Drugs Can Delay the Cancer Spread

    For the first time ever, scientists have come up with results from clinical experiments suggesting that there are drugs for prostate cancer patients whose conditions are aggressive enough to defy standard hormonal therapy. The drugs are capable of delaying the spread of cancer to the bones, lymph and other organs for a period of two years. The two drugs are...

  • Early Prostate Cancer Detection Enhances Effective Treatment

    Early screening is recommendable to reduce the cost of treatment and to catch prostate cancer at its earlier stages to help eradicate this disease. Effective cancer screenings can help to lower the number of deaths relating to prostate cancer. It is estimated that there will be a percentage increase of approximately 18.0% on the number of prostate cancer patients during...

  • New Type of Hazard Scores Help Predict Prostate Cancer

    Going by what researchers at the University of California have discovered, a new kind of hazard score, which is a calculation based on 54 singular nucleotide poly-morphisms, are capable of predicting the age at which one is diagnosed for aggressive prostate cancer. This was later published in the BMJ. Two data sets with 6411 men and 31747 men were...
