  • Aspirin May Help Lower Lethal Prostate Cancer Risks

    While many of the estimated 180,000 American men who will be diagnosed with prostate cancer this year will learn they have a slow-growing, highly treatable form of the disease not all will be so lucky. Some men will find their form of prostate cancer is more aggressive. Others will be diagnosed with the disease after it’s reached a later,...

  • Research Supports Faster Radiation After Prostatectomy

    Treatment protocols for prostate cancer patients who undergo radical prostatectomies may soon change. Two new studies have infused hard evidence into a long-standing dispute over whether it is better to delay radiation after surgery or not. As it turned out, delaying radiation treatments did not have major positive impacts on the likelihood of side effects from treatment arising. It has...

  • Confusion About Prostate Cancer Creating Concerns

    While an estimated 200,000 American men are likely to present with prostate cancer each year, many men are not receiving the information they need to make informed decisions about screening and potential care.

  • Radiotherapy Offers Added Boost In Fighting Node-Positive Prostate Cancer

    An estimated 200,000 men will be told that they have prostate cancer this year. About 30,000 men will die from the disease. While the vast majority of men will be diagnosed in the earliest stages of the disease when treatment options are wide open, some will learn they have a higher risk form of prostate cancer. Researchers are finding...

  • Exercise and Prostate Cancer: Do the Two Combine?

    As more studies uncover a link between the development of more aggressive forms of prostate cancer and obesity, researchers want to find out if exercise can make a difference. Whether getting physical can actually help slow the disease’s progression and stop it from spreading remains to be seen. But, there are some who believe a real difference may be...

  • Vegan Diet May Lower Prostate Cancer Risks

    Men hoping to cut their risk of developing prostate cancer may find one of the more effective ways to do that is by adopting a vegan diet. That’s according to a recent study that showed prostate cancer risks dropped rather nicely in men who employed this quite strict eating routine in their daily lives. To arrive at the findings, researchers...

  • Fat and Prostate Cancer: A Dangerous Combination

    Obesity has been directly linked to the development of a wide variety of diseases, including certain forms of cancer. While being overweight won’t necessarily cause prostate cancer to form, studies have found obesity may play a very strong role in the development of more aggressive forms of the disease. Since the link between obesity and deadlier forms of prostate cancer...

  • Testosterone Therapy Doesn’t Increase High-Grade Prostate Cancer Risks

    Aging takes its toll on a man’s body. Natural testosterone production goes down and the risk for prostate cancer rises. While testosterone replacement therapy can stave off some of the effects of aging, many fear this intervention could actually increase the likelihood of high-grade prostate cancer development. A recently released study, however, is offering a ray of hope to...
