  1. Bacteriophage Provides Promise in Detecting Prostate Cancer
    Most prostate cancers are slow­-growing and do not behave like a cancer at all. This is particularly so for the very common Gleason 6 “cancer” which which lacks the hallmarks of a cancer. This knowledge has lead some doctors to warn against routine prostate cancer screenings and automatic treat…
  2. PROSTATE CANCER UPGRADING: more fear­mongering
    Prostate cancer upgrading means that a prostate cancer grade and score (or measure of prostate cancer aggressiveness) found in a surgically removed prostate gland can, sometimes, be of a higher grade than diagnosed in the initial needle biopsy of the prostate. This so­called upgrading phenomeno…
  3. Study Finds MRI Accurate Predictor of Low­Risk Prostate Cancer
    Is watchful waiting the best choice for prostate cancer patients? According to a recent study from the Memorial Sloan­Kettering Cancer Center in New York City, published in the J​ournal of Urology,​prostate MRI testing can help doctors decide whether or not this less invasive option is the righ…
  4. A Look at the Status of Focal Therapy Treatments for Prostate Cancer
    At the American Urological Association’s Annual Meeting held in May of 2015 in New Orleans, Peter A. Pinto presented information highlighting the current status of focal therapies for prostate cancer. According to the report, over 27,500 men were estimated to die from prostate cancer in 2015, …
  5. Focal Therapy and Image­Guided Treatment the Future of Prostate Cancer Treatment
    At the 2015 European Congress of Radiology, Dr. Hashim Ahmed, senior lecturer at the University College London, presented data on his results using HIFU to treat over 500 men with prostate cancer. According to his results, this treatment, and other treatments that target the cancer rather than the e…
  6. ​PROSTATE CANCER GRADE CREEP
    B. Vorstman MD, MS, FAAP, FRACS, FACS w​ww.urologyweb.com The most common cause of prostate cancer grade creep is NOT some progressive worsening of a prostate cancer grade (aggressiveness), but a tendency for some pathologists to overestimate or inflate a Gleason grade and score to have a man thin…
  7. Prostate Cancer Focal Therapy
    FOCAL PROSTATE CANCER THERAPY Focal therapy of prostate cancer is possible using LASER, CRYOABLATION or HIFU. Currently, only focal cryoablation is reimbursed by insurance companies. Focal laser and HIFU may be reimbursable in some cases. In contrast to the debilitating complications associated with…
  8. THE PSA BIOMARKER FOR PROSTATE CANCER
    The prostatic specific antigen (PSA) is a blood-test biomarker originally FDA-approved for use as a measure of prostate cancer activity NOT prostate cancer detection. PSA-based screening for prostate cancer detection is highly UNRELIABLE. The PSA is not prostate-specific and often fluctuates. The bi…
  9. Which Prostate Cancers Need Treatment?
    The very common Gleason 3+3=6 prostate “cancer” is NOT a health-risk because on both clinical and molecular biology grounds, the Gleason 3+3=6 disease LACKS the hallmarks of a cancer. http://www.ascopost.com/issues/june-10-2016/prostate-cancer-opinions-vary-on-gleason-scores-and-surgery/ …
  10. Imaging, MRI-GUIDED Prostate Cancer Detection and Targeted Biopsy
    MRI is magnetic resonance imaging using a magnetic field and radio waves. Currently, the latest 3T MRI studies include diffusion-weighted imaging and dynamic contrast enhancement ie multi-parametric MRI (mp-MRI), to produce detailed images. These studies are undertaken in the supine position withou…
