Benefits of Cancer Support Groups

We all know there are plenty, but what are the benefits of cancer support groups exactly? Although not all men suffer from prostate cancer, many men do at some point in their lives. Second only to skin cancer, prostate cancer is the most common type of cancer among men. For instance, according to the American Cancer Society in 2022 alone

Relapse After Surgery – Can AI Help Predict it?

Sadly, there are prostate cancer cases where men relapse and the cancer returns. There are current methods already in place to try and detect these changes early, and they are effective. However, a newly developed artificial intelligence has shown the potential to be much more precise. That is, to be more accurate in its predictions of the likelihood of prostate

Genetic Mapping and Prostate Cancer Analysis

A huge aspect of cancer research that has been on the rise is genetic mapping. It can help to understand which cells are related to specific areas of cancer. This information can in turn shed light on how tumours grow and develop. Which then can help inform treatment for given patients and what the best course of action is for

Can Lifestyle Choices Raise or Lower the Risks of Prostate Cancer?

The short answer is yes. There are many lifestyle choices which can contribute to making it more or less likely for a man to develop prostate cancer, or decrease their chances of getting it.

It’s important to know that whatever stage you are at, or if someone you love is fighting prostate cancer, you are not alone. And a prostate cancer support group is

More On Prostate Cancer Research

Last week we discussed new developments in prostate cancer research. Specifically, we focused on genetic research and cancer prevention. With prevention, we looked at ongoing research into specific foods with anti-carcinogenic properties and the potential benefits of vitamin D. This week we are looking at prostate cancer research relevant to advances in early detection and staging. Currently, one of the

New Developments in Prostate Cancer Research

Prostate cancer research in all its aspects is an ever-evolving and ongoing process. It continues worldwide in order to progress and combat this complex condition. There have been recent developments in prostate cancer research, specifically in terms of gene changes, for example. This new research has been aiding scientists to identify how prostate cancer develops. This means it will become

What Options are Available for High PSA Levels Post-Prostate Cancer Treatment?

Continuing on from last week, we are discussing options for post-prostate cancer treatment when PSA levels remain high or increase. In the case, that following surgery your PSA levels are 0.2ng/mL or higher, or following radiation therapy 2ng/mL or higher, it’s important to consider options. These could be signs of prostate cancer returning or having spread to another part of

PSA Levels Rising After Treatment, What You Need to Know

We have talked about how rising PSA levels can be an indicator of developing prostate cancer. These levels, however, usually go down after treatment, because prostate cancer in the majority of cases is treatable. Furthermore, it doesn’t usually return either. Unfortunately, there are some cases where cancer can become recurring even after initial treatment. In fact, this can happen to
