HIFU involves a highly targeted treatment that pinpoints...

  • Immunotherapy and Prostate Cancer: Can it Work?

    Immunotherapy is a cutting-edge form of cancer treatment that is designed to get the body’s own immune system to fight off the disease. Since the immune system is able to discern between diseased cells and healthy ones, this line of treatment is hoped to offer great promise for beating the disease while reducing side effects associated with common interventions....

  • Losing Weight May Help Lower Prostate Cancer Risk

    Although considered highly treatable when detected and addressed in its earliest stages, prostate cancer remains the third leading cause of cancer-related deaths among American men. With an estimated 26,000 deaths attributed to this cause each year, prostate cancer falls just behind lung and colorectal cancers in its potential to be lethal. As it is with most forms of the...

  • Balding May Signal Higher Prostate Cancer Risk: Study

    All men are at risk for the development of prostate cancer as they age. In fact, some 160,000 American males will be diagnosed with this form of cancer in the coming year alone. About 26,000 men will die from the disease. While simply being a man is one of the biggest risk factors for this form of cancer, there...

  • New Therapy May Change Low-Risk Prostate Cancer Treatment

    Men who are diagnosed with low-risk prostate cancer may soon find a new treatment available to them. A drug-based procedure under study in Europe is showing great promise in helping men beat prostate cancer in a minimally invasive way.

  • Advanced Prostate Cancer On the Rise Among Older American Men

    A greater number of American men, age 75 and older, are presenting with more advanced cases of prostate cancer at the time of diagnosis. The numbers are up significantly over the past few years, suggesting to some that recent changes in screening protocols may be to blame. In an effort to reduce over-diagnosis and overtreatment rates, the U.S. Preventative Services...

  • Anxiety May Influence Prostate Cancer Treatment Decisions, Researchers Say

    Men who are diagnosed with prostate cancer may let their emotions rule their treatment decisions. That’s the finding of a recent study that looked into a potential link between anxiety and the path men choose for addressing prostate cancer. The study in question involved more than 1,500 men diagnosed with localized prostate cancer. The majority of study subjects had low-risk...

  • Salvage Radiotherapy Can Reduce Risk of Prostate Cancer Metastasis

    Making the decision to undergo salvage radiotherapy when PSA levels rise even modestly after radical prostatectomy can help reduce the risks of prostate cancer metastasis significantly. That’s the finding of a recent study that looked at the benefits of more immediate intervention when PSA levels rise post-surgery. The study in question involved more than 1,100 men who had detectable PSA...

  • Prostate-Specific Antigen Test Recommendations Based on Flawed Data

    As controversy continues to swirl around a recent change in prostate cancer screening for men, a new evaluation has found the data used to back the alteration of screening guidance was based on flawed data. The Prostate, Lung, Colorectal and Ovary (PLCO) Cancer Screening Trial found that there was no real survival benefit related to the PSA test. With...
