PSA is an essential screening blood test, but controversy has been drawn from the fact that the test can present false positives.

  • History of Heavy Drinking Linked to More Aggressive Prostate Cancer

    A small study suggests that among those men who’ve received a prostate cancer diagnosis, those with a history of drinking at least seven drinks per week have higher chances to develop an aggressive tumor than nondrinkers. The research unveiled that such men had an increased high-grade tumor risk regardless of whether they drank heavily while at 15 to 19 years,...

  • Should Focal Therapy Be Used in Localized Prostate Cancer?

    The use of focal therapy in localized prostate cancer using HIFU (High-intensity focused ultrasound) was conducted in Europe from 625 men who received treatment at different centers with a median follow-up of 56 months. The mean are reporting a high overall survival, a high (failure-free) survival, and a high metastasis-free survival. The study’s strengths are that it’s multicentered, prospective, and...

  • Hi-tech Imaging for Prostate Cancer Can Enhance Patient Survival

    Scientists suggest that men with prostate cancer should be made to undergo high-tech scans to help them avoid needless treatment and live a long life. The present scans can risk missing cancer cells which then spread to other parts of the body. This leads to them getting radiotherapy and other treatment options because doctors don’t know if they have contained the tumor or not....

  • Ways of Minimizing the Risk of Developing Prostate cancer

  • The Rate of Survival in Patients with Prostate Cancer

    A prostate cancer diagnosis is often less serious than it was previously. This is because prostate cancer is usually slow growing and also spreads very slowly. For this reason, prostate cancer is known to have the highest survival rates than any other cancers. Prostate cancer is common with aging, and among older men who die of other causes, two-thirds...

  • Treating Stage 2 Prostate Cancer

    Prostate cancer can progress outside the prostate into surrounding tissue or through the blood or lymph systems. Imaging tests, the Gleason score, and prostate-specific antigen tests are used to determine the stage of the cancer. The stage of prostate cancer shows how aggressive it is and to what extent it has spread. If you are found to have stage...

  • The Symptoms of Prostate Cancer You Shouldn’t Ignore

    Prostate cancer is a common form of cancer that starts growing in the prostate gland which is in the male reproductive system. The disease has various treatment options, but many times treatment may not be done. Because the disease progresses slowly, some men may choose to monitor its progression first before opting for treatment. Prostate cancer occurs in various stages....

  • The Link between Prostate Cancer and Low Free Testosterone

    Men with low free testosterone levels have a 23% reduced risk of prostate cancer compared to those with higher levels. Analyzed data from 20 studies also showed that very low concentration prostate cancer risk didn’t change with the high levels of testosterone. The research suggested that these men with abnormally low testosterone levels are not likely to develop prostate...
