  • Prostate Cancer Metastasis Site Impacts Survival

    Getting a diagnosis of metastatic prostate cancer can be devastating. The news, however, isn’t always as bad as it might seem. Researchers are finding that the metastasis location can greatly impact survival rates in prostate cancer. To gain a better understanding of how metastasis site impacts prognosis researchers recently looked at data related to 9,000 men with castration-resistant prostate cancer....

  • HIFU Might Not be the Answer for Prostate Cancer Treatment

    High-intensity focused ultrasound has proven itself useful in a number of applications. So far, however, prostate cancer is not one of them. Even so, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has given the green light for this treatment’s use for the ablation of prostate tissue. This approval has some clinicians concerned. Previous studies have shown that HIFU is not entirely...

  • Red Foods May Lower Prostate Cancer Risk

    The best way to beat prostate cancer is to prevent it in the first place. While this isn’t always possible, there are measures men can take to lower their risks of developing this disease. One of the steps men can take to potentially lower their risks is to incorporate more “red foods” in their diet. Specifically, foods containing lycopene...

  • 6 Prostate Cancer Risk Factors All Men Should Know

    Prostate cancer affects about 180,000 American men each year. Often highly treatable, this disease is frequently beaten by those who manage to detect it early and undergo any treatments deemed necessary for saving lives. An estimated 26,000 American men, however, do die from the disease each year. That makes it especially important for men to understand not only the...

  • Early Puberty Can Increase Prostate Cancer Risk

    Boys who enter puberty at younger ages might be at higher risk for developing prostate cancer down the road. That finding came from a recent study that looked at genetic data related to nearly 3,000 men. Some of the men in the study had prostate cancer and others did not. During the course of the study, researchers found that men...

  • Classifying Intermediate-Risk Prostate Cancer May Help Improve Outcomes

    While many of the 180,000 American men diagnosed with prostate cancer in the upcoming year will find their disease is slow-growing and poses little risk, this isn’t always the case. For men with intermediate risk forms of prostate cancer, radical prostatectomies may be necessary to improve survival chances. This doesn’t mean, however, that all men who undergo this surgery...

  • Prostate Cancer Antiandrogen Therapy: Enzalutamide Offers Strong Results

    For men with asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic metastatic castration -resistant prostate cancer, one antiandrogen drug may work better than a more commonly prescribed option. Research is finding that the drug Enzalutamide performs better than bicalutamide in helping promote progression free survival. Antiandrogen drugs are sometimes used to help treat prostate cancer that is considered aggressive and has spread. This form...

  • Prostate-Specific Antigen Test: Facts To Know

    The prostate-specific antigen, or PSA, test is meant to gauge the level of a protein that is produced by cells within the prostate gland. This simple blood test measures the level of PSA in a man’s blood, offering potential insights into the presence of cancer and other concerns. Over the past few years, the PSA test has stood at the...

  • 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...
