A newly developed test can detect the risk of metastasis in people with prostate cancer at a quicker rate, lower cost, and using smaller tissue samples.
By coating nanoparticles with gold, researchers have successfully destroyed prostate cancer cells in people without damaging surrounding tissue.
Back pain is a common complaint with many possible causes. In some cases, chronic, unexplained back pain can occur with advanced prostate cancer. Learn more here.
A prostatectomy is one treatment option for prostate cancer. It involves the surgical removal of the prostate gland. Following a prostatectomy, doctors carry out regular prostate-specific antigen (PSA) testing to check that the cancer is not returning….
Doctors do not fully understand what causes prostate cancer. This disease may have an association with alcohol, but scientists need to do more research to confirm the potential link. Here, learn more about the risks of alcohol, how doctors screen for a…
Pelvic pain in men can result from a range of issues, including a hernia, prostatitis, and appendicitis. This pain occurs somewhere between the navel and groin. Treatment depends on the cause and may involve antibiotics. Learn about the most common cau…
When prostate cancer spreads to the bones, this is known as bone metastases. Although there is no cure for this advanced stage of prostate cancer, treatment can help relieve symptoms, improve quality of life, and extend life expectancy. Learn more here.
Prostate cancer is common, so findings new ways to destroy it is very important. Now, researchers believe that they may have found a new drug target.
A panel of experts from the United Kingdom is asking whether regular screening for prostate cancer actually brings enough benefits to outweigh the risks.
Some prostate cancers resist androgen-targeting therapy and continue to spread because the treatment alters the environment of tumor cells, a study shows.
Age, genetics, and a poor diet are among the many risk factors for prostate cancer. By taking certain steps, a person may be able to reduce their risk. For example, adding soy products and coffee to the diet may help. Learn about natural ways to preven…
A new clinical trial proves the benefits of an innovative form of radiotherapy that reduces the treatment to five sessions instead of the usual 37.
Creating a way to keep prostate cancer cells alive in the laboratory for longer leads to quicker drug trials. Sharing this widely speeds it up further.
Using a range of tools, researchers identify a plausible mechanism and genes through which a genetic variation influences prostate cancer aggressiveness.
Prostatitis is an inflammation of the prostate that can cause pain, sexual dysfunction, and urination issues. Chronic prostatitis might last for more than 3 months. Possible causes include bacterial infections and damage to the nerves or muscles in the…
Benign prostatic hyperplasia, or BPH, is the medical term for an enlarged prostate. BPH can cause difficulties with urination. Treatment options for BPH include watchful waiting, medication, minimally invasive procedures, and surgery. Lifestyle changes…
Enzalutamide reduced metastasis or death risk by 71 percent in phase III trial of castration-resistant nonmetastatic prostate cancer with escalating PSA.
Research locates new genetic markers that may show an elevated risk of developing prostate cancer. This will help to identify men who need early screening.
For the first time, a major clinical trial shows that immunotherapy can successfully treat very advanced forms of prostate cancer.
A free PSA test measures the level of prostate-specific antigens that are not bound to other proteins in the blood. This test can help doctors to diagnose problems with the prostate, including cancer. In this article, we look at how a free PSA test dif…
