Prior Radiation Exposure Should Not Effect The Outcomes Derived From The Implantation Of An Artificial Urinary Sphincter

The possibility of having incontinence as a side effect from all of the primary prostate cancer treatments is significant. Incontinence is not an either or thing as the degree of incontinence varies from individual to individual. Those men having significant levels of inconvenience find that their quality of life is significantly damaged in some cases to the point that we are unable to live our life. We cannot go to the theater, take an airplane, meet friends or family outside our own home, etc.  Life becomes difficult and unhappy. The most common procedure to combat this level of incontinence is [...]

Radiotherapy Might Not Extend Survival In Men With Prostate Cancer Who Are Under 70 Years Old

Increasingly, we are seeing younger men diagnosed with prostate cancer and with bone metastases. One of the more common therapies, radiotherapy is recognized for its effect on local control of bone metastases, but whether it could prolong overall survival, the gold standard is still controversial. Researchers retrospectively evaluated 113 men with prostate cancer and bone metastases who were younger than 70 years of age to see if radiotherapy extended their survival. They found that the 1-, 2-, 3-, 5-, 7- and 10-year survival rates showed no significant difference between a control group and those who had radiotherapy. They did find [...]

High Volume Radiation Treatment Facilities Produce Better Survival In Men with Aggressive Prostate Cancer

According to researchers at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston Ma., men with aggressive prostate cancer who have radiation therapy to treat the cancer have better overall survival rates when the therapy is given at a high volume treatment facility. Paul Nguyen, MD, a physician researcher in the department of Radiation Oncology at Brigham said, “Our paper shows that experience counts.” He said, “For men with aggressive prostate cancer, survival is improved if they receive their radiation treatments at a high volume facility as opposed to a lower volume facility.” The study used data from 19,565 men diagnosed with high-risk prostate cancer from 2004 [...]

Salvage Radical Prostatectomy Improves Long Term Survival in Men with Radiation Recurrent Prostate Cancer

A retrospective study, using the SEER Date, a U.S. national database, analyzed data from men diagnosed with prostate cancer and found that salvage radical prostatectomy (SRP) improved the long-term survival in men whose cancer has returned after receiving radiation therapy. We know that approximately 30% of men who have radiation therapy as their primary therapy will have a recurrence of their prostate cancer within 5 years of completing the radiation. The researchers from the University of Missouri School of Medicine identified men with prostate cancer who underwent surgery after radiation. They identified and analyzed the overall and cancer-specific survival outcomes in 364 of these men who underwent salvage [...]
