Effective management of dietary cholesterol may prevent metastasis in patients with prostate cancer

the ONA take:

New findings from researchers in Australia indicate dietary measures may prevent metastasis of prostate cancer. The study findings show that a high-cholesterol diet increased the spread of the disease to the lymph nodes, lungs, and bones. The researchers report that high cholesterol did not increase the size of the original tumor, but cholesterol drew two key proteins to the surface of the prostate cancer cell. This action disrupted cell function, making the cancer more aggressive and spreading it throughout the body.

Further research is seeking to find a way to block the effect of cholesterol, potentially leading to future treatments that could prevent prostate cancer metastasis. But more importantly, managing the disease may be achieved through working with patients to reduce cholesterol through dietary measures and existing cholesterol medication.
