Active Surveillance of Intermediate-Risk Prostate Cancer Associated With Decreased Survival

View | Comment

An analysis of data on 945 patients with prostate cancer that is managed with active surveillance shows differences in outcomes depending on whether the patient was low or intermediate risk at diagnosis. Compared to patients with low-risk disease, those with intermediate-risk cancer (PSA >10ng/ml or Gleason score 7 or clinical stage T2b/2c) had a nearly four-fold higher chance of dying from prostate cancer within 15 years. The study will be presented at the upcoming 2015 Genitourinary Cancers Symposium in Orlando.

Men Who Have Had Testicular Cancer Are More Likely to Develop Prostate Cancer, Although Overall Risk of Developing Aggressive Disease is Low

View | Comment

A case-control study of close to 180,000 men suggests that the incidence of prostate cancer is higher among men with a history of testicular cancer (12.6 percent) than among those without a history of testicular cancer (2.8 percent). Men who have had testicular cancer were also more likely to develop intermediate- or high-risk prostate cancers. The study will be presented at the upcoming 2015 Genitourinary Cancers Symposium in Orlando.
