Does Screening For Prostate Cancer Saves Lives?

Does Screening For Prostate Cancer Saves Lives? Digital Rectal Examination
The debate over the reason to screen males for prostate cancer continues. Adding to this debate. two widely used screening tests for prostate namely digital rectal examination (DRE) and PSA testing does not save lives as per a new study.

This was a small study, which included only 1,002 men, and for the same reason will not be the final word on this controversy. Nevertheless, this may hint at what lies in the lead when the results of two large studies of prostate cancer screening appear in a few years.

The researchers looked at these two common screening tests that are performed millions of times a year in the United States: PSA, and a DRE.

A co-author of the study, Dr. John Concato, said that for now, doctors should tell men that screening tests for prostate cancer are not perfect, and men should decide for themselves whether to get screened.

The reason why there is no benefit in screening may be due to the fact that some cases of prostate cancer can be so slow-growing that they never cause symptoms, much less death. Treatment for these slow growing tumors using surgery or radiation can cause incontinence and impotence. So for some men, detecting prostate cancer early through screening can do more harm than good.

The results of PSA may be ambiguous results. It should be remembered that most men who undergo a biopsy because they have elevated PSA levels do not have prostate cancer. On the other hand, some men with low PSA levels may present with prostate cancer.

Various medical organizations have differing opinions regarding screening of prostate cancer. But most of these recommendations suggest a benefit to screening.

Novel Radiation Therapy Technique For Prostate Cancer

Novel Radiation Therapy Technique For Prostate Cancer
Brachytherapy is using Cesium-131 is a novel radiation therapy technique for the treatment of prostate cancer. Brachytherapy is different from the conventional radiation therapy. In conventional radiation therapy radiation beams are projected in to the area of the body that needs to be treated. In Brachytherapy, the urologist or radiation oncologist puts several radioactive beads in and around the prostate gland. Radiation from the radioactive beads kills or arrests the growth of the cancer with minimal damage to healthy tissue. This helps prevent incontinence and preserve the nerves that allow for erection.

Brachytherapy as such is not a new technique, but the use of Cesium-131 for brachytherapy of prostate cancer is a relatively new development. Cesium-131, which was approved in 2003 by the FDA for use in brachytherapy for prostate cancer and other malignancies, has several advantages over other radioactive isotopes. Compared to Iodine-125 and Palladium-103, which are commonly used alternatives, Cesium-131 has a higher energy, shorter half-life, and uses a lower total dose of radiation.

Compared to Iodine-125 and Palladium-103, it has a higher energy, shorter half-life, and uses a lower total dose of radiation. Cesium-131 has a half-life of about 10 days, compared to a half-life of 17 days and 60 days for Palladium-103 and Iodine-125, respectively. A shorter half-life means faster dose delivery, that cancer cells have less opportunity to repopulate, and less protracted radiation to normal healthy tissues.

Statins Have No Cancer Protective Effect

Statins Have No Cancer Protective Effect
Contrary to the common scientific community belief and findings from some earlier studies, statins, the popular cholesterol lowering drugs may not protect you from developing any type of cancer as per findings from two new studies.

Previous preliminary studies have shown that statins may have a protective effect in various types of cancers including breast cancer, colon cancer and prostate cancer. However a recent meta analysis of 26 studies involving 87,000 patients has concluded that statins do not lower the risk of developing cancer or dying from cancer. The drug had absolutely no impact on cancer as per the article published in Journal of the American Medical Association.

In another parallel study conducted by the American Cancer Society researchers, reviewed data on more than 130,000 patients from the United States and found that statins have no effect on colon cancer. These researchers found no difference in cancer rates between those who used statins and those who did not. Their findings are published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute's January 4 issue.


This probably would conclude the matter with statins and cancer protection. Statins are the most commonly prescribed drugs in the world. This group includes, Pfizer Inc.'s Lipitor, Merck and Co Inc.'s Zocor, Bristol-Myers Squibb's Pravachol, Merck's Mevacor and Novartis AG's Lescol.

Craig Ramsay To Undergo Prostate Cancer Surgery

Craig Ramsay To Undergo Prostate Cancer Surgery
Associate coach of the Tampa Bay Lightning Craig Ramsay, will have surgery to remove his prostate cancer next week.

Ramsay, who is 54, was diagnosed with prostate cancer in September. He has early stage prostate cancer and probably can be cured by surgery. The condition was identified in its earliest stages and Ramsay's doctors expect him to make a complete and speedy recovery, the Lightning said in a news release.

His surgery will be performed Friday at St. Joseph's Hospital in Tampa.

Ramsay will not be with the team when it begins a four-game road trip Monday against the Islanders. The Lightning hope he will be able to rejoin the team for its West Coast swing in mid-January.

Craig Ramsay is a retired professional ice hockey left winger who played in the NHL from 1971 to 1985. Ramsay was selected 19th overall by the Buffalo Sabres in the 1971 NHL Amateur Draft. He played 1,070 career NHL games, all with Buffalo, scoring 252 goals and 420 assists for 672 points.

Beware of Sharks!

Beware of Sharks!
As caner strikes some person, it not only exhausts the person physically and emotionally but also can also affect the person and family financially. Naturally every one of us wants to get the best price for the drugs in the market. While you can research on the Internet and often get very good deals for many of the cancer medications, you should be very careful with this process. There are sharks out there waiting for the right opportunity.

Go to http://www.cancercure.org/ and you can see a list of cancer medications that you can buy from this site. Also you can buy many medications and alternative therapies that can cure your cancer. They offer you FDA approved treatment of cancer that will keep you cancer free for the rest of your life.

This and a series of other pharmaceutical websites are run by a man once known in South Florida as "Big Pimpin' Pappy" who has now moved into the bogus pharmaceutical business using a Boca Raton post office box.

Arthur Vanmoor was deported to the Netherlands after pleading no contest last year to conspiracy and racketeering charges for allegedly running a lucrative and organized prostitution ring in Broward and southern Palm Beach counties.

A federal judge ordered http://www.cancercure.org/ to be shut down immediately, but it is still operational at the time of posting this blog.

Prostate Cancer Treatment And Bone Loss

Prostate Cancer Treatment And Bone Loss
Hormonal therapy is the main form of treatment for prostate cancer. This hormonal therapy may come at a cost as per a new study, which suggest that prolonged hormonal therapy may be associated with bone loss.

Researchers at the University of Pittsburgh compared the bone health of 152 men with prostate cancer to that of healthy men, for one year. About half the cancer patients had not received hormonal therapy, 30 had received it for less than six months, while 50 had received it for six months or more.

Healthy men and cancer patients who had not undergone hormonal treatment showed no bone loss, the researchers report in the December issue of the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism.

But those who had recently started hormonal therapy showed a loss of bone mineral density ranging from 1 percent to 4 percent.

"Men with prostate cancer who are initiating androgen deprivation therapy have a 5- to 10-fold increased loss of bone density at multiple skeletal sites," compared to men not on this therapy, the researchers concluded.

Based on the findings, they suggested that patients receiving this type of hormonal therapy also receive concurrent treatment aimed at slowing or stopping bone loss, especially in the first year after such therapy begins.

Breast cancer blog: Breast cancer blog is run by Janet and colleagues. Latest post from this breast cancer blog reads as follows: Location of Breast Cancer Does Matter - Does it really matter which part of the breast you develop cancer? Researchers say yes.
Researchers from Switzerland recently reported that women with early breast cancer in the lower inner quadrant (the lower part of the breast, closer to the center of the body) are twice as likely to die of their cancer as women with cancer diagnosed in other parts of the breast. Researchers speculate this could be due to undetected spread of the cancer to the lymph nodes of the internal mammary chain (lymph nodes near the center of the chest). These lymph nodes are difficult to be evaluated for the presence of cancer.......

Cancer Death Rate Continues to Drop in U.S.

Cancer Death Rate Continues to Drop in U.S.
It is comforting to know that the cancer death rates continue to drop and cancer diagnosis rate continue to be stable in the United States. This is true for most of the common types of cancer including breast cancer, lung cancer, colorectal cancer and the prostate cancer. This information is released by the National Cancer Institute.

The stabilization of the cancer diagnosis rate shows that Americans are taking some steps to help prevent cancer, the agency said, and the use of some screening tests is at high rates in an effort to detect cancers early.

"The overall message of the report remains positive," NCI Director Andrew C. von Eschenbach said in releasing the report. "The evidence that I have seen convinces me that we are poised to make dramatic gains against cancer in the near future."

The rate of new cases of cancer was 488.6 per 100,000 Americans in 2002, close to the rate of 488.1 a year earlier.

At the same time, the death rate for all cancers was 193.6 per 100,000, down from 195.7 a year earlier and continuing a steady downward trend. Death rates for prostate cancer showed, 28.0 per 100,000, down from 28.9, breast cancer death rates were down to 25.4, from 26.0, colorectal cancers were down to, 19.6, from 20.1 and lung death rates were down to 54.8 from 55.2.

Smoking by youths, which had been growing in the 1990s, has been declining since 1997, the report said. Youths are starting to smoke later, with average age for first use of cigarettes at 15.4 in 2003, up from 14.9 a decade earlier. And the percentage of high schoolers who smoked cigarettes fell from 30.5 percent to 21.9 percent in the same period.

Vitamin E and Prostate Cancer

Vitamin E and Prostate Cancer
Does vitamin E prevents prostate cancer or not, that's the question in highlight for some researchers from Harvard. The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force recently recommended against routine vitamin use to prevent cancer and cardiovascular disease. The recommendation was based on a series of clinical trials. However, just a few weeks later, results from a trial showed that men with high blood levels of alpha-tocopherol (a form of vitamin E) had a lower risk of prostate cancer, reports Harvard Men's Health Watch.

"The ATBC research provides some support for vitamin E, but it's not conclusive," notes Dr. Harvey Simon, editor in chief of Harvard Men's Health Watch. "Although it was a well-conducted clinical trial, its primary goal was to evaluate lung cancer. More important, all the subjects were smokers." A few other studies looked into this matter and found that vitamin E was not consistently beneficial in reducing the risk of prostate cancer in smokers and nonsmokers.

The relationship between vitamin E and prostate cancer has yet another complexity. Vitamin E consists of a family of chemicals known as tocopherols. Alpha-tocopherol, the form usually found in supplements, is most common. But another tocopherol, gamma-tocopherol, which is found in foods but not normally in supplements, may have an impact on prostate cancer. Studies disagree, however, on which form has the greatest effect.

Should you use antioxidants to reduce your risk of prostate cancer? The Harvard Men's Health Watch reports that despite the encouraging ATBC results, there is not enough evidence at present to warrant widespread use of any form of vitamin E for prostate cancer risk reduction. But while supplementation does not seem wise, there's plenty of support for getting lots of antioxidants from foods.

Lean Body Mass And Prostate Cancer

Lean Body Mass And Prostate Cancer
Lean body mass is calculated using an equation to determine body mass minus the fat. Now a new study has found that a high lean body mass may lower your risk of prostate cancer.

Most previous investigators used body mass index for estimating the risk of development of prostate cancer, but body mass index includes lean and fat tissue, which may have different influences on the risk of cancer.

In an attempt to settle things, John S. Witte from the University of California, San Francisco, and his colleagues conducted a study of 439 men with prostate cancer and 479 of their siblings without prostate cancer. They examined the effects of weight, height, body mass index, and lean body mass, which they thought might be more relevant than body mass index to the risk of prostate cancer and aggressiveness of the disease.

The researchers found that the higher the lean body mass, the lower the risk of prostate cancer, especially in men with more aggressive disease or who were older when their cancer was diagnosed. They also observed a similar, though weaker, inverse pattern for weight, but found no associations between risk of prostate cancer and body mass index or height.

The investigators suspect that the inverse associations between higher lean body mass and prostate cancer risk may reflect the potentially protective effect of high levels of the male hormone androgen in patients with high lean body mass on the development and progression of prostate cancer.

Cure Cancer With Your Personal Computer

Cure Cancer With Your Personal Computer
I was reading this report from ABC and thought that this story is worth mentioning here. The report says that you can contribute towards cancer research by allowing the supercomputer of the researchers to use some of the computing powers of your home pc.

The idea is this: you can download a small program and install it on your computer and then forget about it. The researchers would use that extra computing power on your computer, to expand the capabilities of their super computer.

The report says that, modern computers are incredibly powerful machines whose processing abilities are seldom used to their full abilities. Regardless of how hard you push it, you're probably not using as much of the computer's power as you think.

Is it safe, that's the next question?
With widespread reports of Internet virus attacks, worms, Trojan horses, spyware and identity theft, some might fear that participating in a grid will make them more vulnerable to becoming a virtual victim.

"We are comfortable saying that on any computer you're willing to browse, you should be comfortable putting our client on," said Armentrout of his company's grid software. "We say it's safer than surfing."

Litow said that IBM is also committed to keeping participants safe, and that in the year IBM's World Community Grid has been in existence - a network of humanitarian grid projects - there hasn't been a single problem.

PSA Test Affected By Demographic And Lifestyle Factors

PSA Test Affected By Demographic And Lifestyle Factors
According to a new study published in latest issue of journal Cancer, the reliability of a prostate cancer-screening test may be compromised by lifestyle and demographic factors. The study reveals that the rate of change in the level of prostate specific antigen (PSA) over time called PSA velocity can be significantly affected by age, race, and diet. This may lead to falsely lower or elevated values and possible misinterpretation by doctors. Single determinations of PSA level, which is the most common use of the PSA screening test, were also affected by age and body mass index (BMI).

Studies have shown a decrease in prostate cancer mortality since 1992 and some researchers attribute a portion of that fall to the widespread adoption of the PSA test. But some experts say that measuring PSA levels alone causes too many false positives and leads to many unnecessary tests, such as biopsies and transrectal ultrasounds.

Investigators continue to refine the test, including developing calculations such as PSA velocity, PSA density, and age-specific PSA, or other tests such as percent free PSA. However, there is poor understanding of the effect of other factors, such as diet, race, and weight on PSA and its related measurements.

Alan R. Kristal, Dr.P.H. of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle and colleagues reviewed PSA and PSA velocity data from 3,341 cancer-free men to determine relationships between PSA tests and demographic and lifestyle factors.

PSA velocity was significantly affected by age, race and diet, potentially affecting its clinical interpretation. PSA velocity decreased as men aged, and increased with higher total energy calorie diets. PSA velocity in African Americans was on average almost twice the level of Caucasians, and was lower among users of high-dose calcium supplements. Large weight fluctuations also affected PSA velocity. Men who gained weight had lower PSA velocity and those who lost weight had higher PSA velocity.

Prostate cancer
The prostate is located just below the bladder and in front of the rectum in male. The tube that carries urine runs through the prostate. The prostate contains cells that make some of the seminal fluid. This fluid protects and nourishes the sperm. Prostate cancer usually starts in the gland cells of the prostate. This kind of cancer is known as adenocarcinoma. Prostate cancer is usually a slow disease, but sometimes it can grow fast and spread quickly to other organs.
