  • Researchers Unlocking the Mystery of Late-Stage Prostate Cancer Cells

    While most of the 220,000 American males diagnosed with prostate cancer this year will find their disease is in an earlier, more treatable stage, some will not. Aggressive forms of the disease, those that are later in stage and may have already spread to other parts of the body, pose a unique challenge in fighting. Researchers at the University...

  • Advanced Prostate Cancer Patients May Benefit from Radiation Therapy

    Older men who find themselves diagnosed with advanced prostate cancer will often find their treatment options limited. Hoping to spare them from unnecessary side effects, doctors often recommend the use of androgen-replacement therapy as one of the sole courses of action. While very successful in helping prolong life, ADT patients may find another therapy added in the mix enhances...

  • Prostate Cancer Sniffing Dogs May Be in the Future

    The world has long known that dogs have a much more sensitive sense of smell than humans. People found that highly trained canines are incredibly useful for sniffing out everything from bombs and drugs to lost little children. Researchers in Great Britain are now working on a way to train dogs to sniff out prostate cancer. As it turns out,...

  • Black Men and Prostate Cancer: Why the Ethnic Link is So Strong

    Prostate cancer affects an estimated 220,000 American men each and every year. About 30,000 men in the United States also succumb to the disease on an annual basis. While screening and early detection can enable some men to undergo potentially life-saving treatments, not all men receive the screening required to catch the disease early. When it comes to assessing...

  • Urine Test Offers Way to Detect Prostate Cancer Marker

    As the prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test is called into doubt, researchers across the globe have been working diligently to find ways to more accurately detect prostate cancer in its earliest stages. Scientists in Italy may have unlocked a new method that’s cheap and disposable to help locate a key prostate cancer marker. Rather than the blood, the test uses...

  • Prostate Cancer Diagnoses Down

    News that the diagnosis rates for prostate cancer happen to be down might ring as music to some people’s ears. The findings, however, aren’t necessarily great news for all men who may find their opportunities to treat higher risk forms of the disease diminish right along with recommendations for early screenings. A drop in prostate cancer cases reported in the...

  • Diet Changes May Lower Prostate Cancer Risk

    Prostate cancer has long been considered one of the leading forms of cancer killers in the United States for men. This disease strikes about 220,000 American men each year and claims some 27,000 lives. While reducing all of the risk factors for the disease may not be possible, eating smarter can make a difference, some doctors say. A healthy, balanced...

  • Targeted Prostate Cancer Treatment Becoming the Norm

    As one of the leading cancer killers of men in the United States, prostate cancer has long been treated aggressively. While beneficial for those who see their survivability rates rise, aggressive treatments are not always needed and may, indeed, lead to unnecessary side effect risks in some cases. After years of a push-and-pull on the best treatment protocols, more doctors...

  • Better Prostate Cancer Screenings Needed

    Prostate cancer screening is effective, but it isn’t without its share of problems. The standard Prostate-Specific Antigen blood test, for example, can help doctors see if there might be a cause to explore the possibilities further. Elevated PSA levels may indicate the presence of cancer, after all. These tests sometimes produce false positives, which is why biopsies are often...

  • Active Surveillance Becoming a Popular Prostate Cancer Option

    A diagnosis of cancer means the time for immediate, often aggressive, action has arrived. While that might be true with many forms of the disease, sometimes waiting and watching is the best approach to take with prostate cancer. While this particular fact has long been known, men for quite some time were still opting for more aggressive treatments. The...
