Family history does not predict aggressiveness of prostate cancer or suitability for active surveillance as a treatment option.
African American men choosing active surveillance for their low-grade prostate cancer have overall poorer health than non-African American men undergoing active surveillance.
Follow-up Rates in Active Surveillance for Prostate Cancer Higher in University-Based vs Safety-Net HospitalsFebruary 24, 2017
A significant difference exists in the failure to follow-up rates among patients undergoing active surveillance at university-based hospitals versus safety-net hospitals.
Researchers analyzed data from the NPCR of Sweden to determine whether more US men with prostate cancer would choose active surveillance if it were presented as a treatment option.
Disease-specific mortality rates for men with prostate cancer are comparable for 3 treatment options: active surveillance, radical prostatectomy, and external-beam radiotherapy.
Ethnicity influences patient decision to pursue active treatment and serial biopsies in active surveillance
Patients with slow-growing prostate cancer are increasingly opting for active surveillance and only changing treatment plan if the disease changes to a higher risk form to avoid unnecessary and potentially toxic treatments.
African American men with Gleason score 3+3=6 prostate cancer produce less PSA and have significantly lower PSA density than white men, according to a new study. These findings could have important implications for treatment decision-making.
Higher radiation dose is associated with improved survival rates among men with medium- and high-risk prostate cancer.
An analysis of data on 945 patients with prostate cancer followed with active surveillance displayed outcome differences, depending on whether the patient was low- or intermediate-risk at diagnosis.
New research suggests that active surveillance may be an initial approach for men with favorable intermediate-risk prostate cancer.
Active surveillance allows men with prostate cancer to delay or avoid the side effects of its treatment as well.
The level of expression of three genes associated with aging can be used to predict whether seemingly low-risk prostate cancer will remain slow growing, according to new research.
The proportion of men with advanced-stage prostate tumors at diagnosis has dropped dramatically since the widespread implementation of PSA screening, but the proportion of men with aggressive cancers at diagnosis has not changed substantially.
A clinic-based technique of targeted biopsy using MRI and ultrasound may improve the diagnosis and management of prostate cancer.
Active surveillance of small kidney masses is a safe and effective alternative to immediate surgery. The overall and cancer specific survival rates are similar for both approaches.
