  • 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...

  • Using New Techniques to Fight Prostate Cancer

    The medical field has experienced a lot of success with modern treatments such as radiotherapy and surgery especially when the disease is identified early. Even so, it seems there’s still a lot to learn since cancer cells evolve so quickly, and new and innovative anticancer agents are required. Laboratory-grown prostate cancer cells have been discovered to change how research...

  • Prostate Cancer Symptoms: Watch Out for These Urine Patterns

    Most cancers don't show symptoms until it's in late stages. Prostate cancer symptoms show when the tumor enlarged thus putting pressure on the urethra. The most common type of cancer in men in the U.S. is prostate cancer. Changes in urine patterns can indicate prostate cancer. Men are advised to check their urine patterns to prevent late prostate cancer...

  • Taking a Closer Look at Prostate Cancer

    Prostate cancer does not cause symptoms until it reaches late stages. By the time cancer reaches the final stages, the treatment becomes challenging and many patients could die. In the later stages, treatment becomes costly and it’s difficult to manage the symptoms. Cancer check-ups are done annually in most cancer centers. Men are advised to get routine prostate check-ups...

  • The Effectiveness of Immunotherapy on Advanced Prostate Cancer Response

    Immunotherapy is a form of treatment that enhances the immune system to fight cancer. It uses checkpoint inhibitors (a type of drug) to stimulate the immune system to attack cancer cells. Immunotherapy is very effective in cancers with high-level genetic mutations such as lung cancer, bladder cancer, and melanoma. In prostate cancer, previous trials observed that immunotherapy could not...

  • 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...
