  • Delaying Treatment After Prostate Cancer Diagnosis: Is It Safe?

    Waiting for test results can be unnerving because you don’t know what to expect. After a prostate biopsy, you may find yourself looking for more information and you will find out about many treatment options in the event you do have cancer. Patients that are diagnosed with low-risk prostate cancer are more likely to choose Active Surveillance over other...

  • Gene Causing Spread of Prostate Cancer Identified

    Researchers from Rutgers University have found a particular gene present in prostate cancer tumors that shows when patients are at a high risk of having their cancer spread. By extension, this find suggests that targeting treatment interventions at this particular gene can aid in prostate cancer patients living longer. This NSD2 gene was identified using a computer algorithm that was...

  • Important Information for Urologists on Hereditary Prostate Cancer

    Prostate cancer is currently the most common cancer in men over the age of 50 and the second leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States. Estimations show that in 2018 alone, 165,000 men would be diagnosed with prostate cancer and over 29,000 men suffering from it would die from this disease. African American men are almost twice as...

  • A New Blood Test for Prostate Cancer can Detect Treatment Failure Early

    A study revealed that a new blood test had been proven to detect the early signs that prostate cancer will resist treatment. The liquid biopsy test is opening ways for developing more tests that will help analyze whole tumor cells circulating in the blood to provide details about the tumor’s genetic make-up. It is perceived that in future, the...

  • Prostate Cancer Screening: What are Your Options?

    A debate has been surrounding the prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test used to detect the activity of cells in the prostate. PSA is an essential screening blood test, but controversy has been drawn from the fact that the test can present false positives. This is because there are more issues other than cancer that can directly affect PSA levels. Issues...

  • 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

    Prostate cancer is known to feed on DHT (dihydrotestosterone) and testosterone. There’s no definite prevention strategy for prostate cancer. But as a patient, you can reduce its risk by making healthy choices. Every man who is concerned about their prostate health should be interested in the prevention of the disease. Doctors recommend that men at average risk of developing...

  • Detecting Prostate Cancer Early Can Help Save Lives

    Prostate cancer is known to manifest in elderly men who will notice changes in urination, blood in urine, difficulty in sexual relations or constant back pain. Any persistence in these symptoms will require that you get a doctor’s examination which is likely to reveal an enlarged prostate. It could also indicate the more serious condition of prostate cancer.  Prostate...
