To be honest, the question does not have a clear answer. I read one journal article in which “surgical manipulation” of the prostate gland during radical prostatectomy (RP) increased the number of circulating tumor cells (CTCs, or breakaway tumor cells into blood circulation); it was proven by comparing blood samples before and during surgery. Then keep reading
I have previously written several blogs about the correlation between lifestyle choices (diet, exercise, supplements, etc.) and the risk of prostate cancer (PCa). There is ample evidence that healthy choices can reduce risk by helping the genes that discourage tumor growth. On the other side, there are also plenty of studies that show a connection keep reading
I’m excited to announce news about a new way to quantify the effects of focal laser ablation (FLA) in a way that may allow us to predict long term treatment success. I was a member of a research team out of Case Western Reserve University that developed an innovative way to use MRI before, during keep reading
Word is spreading fast that a dietary supplement called 4-MU can stop prostate cancer (PCa) in its tracks. Stories like Fox News Health’s “Dietary Supplement May Prevent and Treat Prostate Cancer, Study Says,” and the bulletin from the University of Miami Health System’s “Sylvester Researchers Report Prevention of Lethal Prostate Cancer with 4-MU Dietary Supplement” keep reading
Sinking your mental teeth into a banquet of information can be as satisfying as sitting down to a 5-course feast. At least, that’s how I felt when I came across a well-written review called “Multiparametric MRI in Diagnosis of Prostate Cancer” by Sangeet Ghai and Masoom A Haider.[i] I personally think it’s well worth reading, keep reading
When it comes to the debate over significant vs. insignificant prostate cancer (PCa), these are interesting times. For instance, some experts are now suggesting that Gleason 6 (3+3) PCa does not behave like cancer. By this they mean that not all cases of Gleason 3+3 grow in size or become more aggressive. They raise the keep reading
