Meta-analysis of data from more than 50 studies reaffirms that vasectomy is not associated with increased risk of prostate cancer.
A cancer diagnosis often further stigmatizes gay men, particularly those who have not revealed their sexual orientation to others. In this review, CancerCare's Bill Goeren discusses the psychosocial challenges inherent to cancer care for gay men.
Male breast cancer patients are less likely than their female counterparts to receive adjuvant hormone therapy and postlumpectomy radiation.
There is no association between vasectomy and the risk of overall, high-grade, or advanced-stage prostate cancer or prostate cancer-related mortality.
The use of cytokine granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) may help to preserve fertility in male patients with cancer, according to research.
African American men choosing active surveillance for their low-grade prostate cancer have overall poorer health than non-African American men undergoing active surveillance.
Adopting healthy lifestyle can cut 25-year risk for the disease from 29 to 13 percent.
There is a higher risk of secondary primary cancer in obese male survivors versus the general population.
Optimal risk stratification differs between male and female breast cancers. Outcomes for male patients with breast cancer were not significantly correlated with histologic grade, unlike for female patients.
This fact sheet reviews the PSA test for prostate cancer, in particular screening recommendations, test limitations, and possible improvements the future may hold in store for the test.
A study that tracked tens of thousands of midlife and older men for more than 20 years has found that vigorous exercise and other healthy lifestyle habits may reduce their chances of developing a lethal type of prostate cancer by up to 68%.
A new study has uncovered four new genetic variants associated with increased risk of testicular cancer. Testing for these and all 21 previously identified variants using genetic sequencing identified men at higher risk of testicular cancer.
Scientists have developed a test that assesses 3 features of nonseminomatous germ cell tumor, a common kind of testicular cancer, to identify those patients at greatest risk of relapse.
The double mastectomy trend mirrors the one seen in women, researchers say.
New diagnoses of prostate cancer have declined in the U.S. following the 2011 USPSTF draft recommendation regarding the use of prostate-specific antigen (PSA)-based screenings.
New research indicates that men with naturally high levels of the female hormone estrogen may have a greater risk of developing breast cancer.
Men with prostate cancer that has spread to nearby lymph nodes may find the addition of radiation therapy to treatments that block the effects of testosterone beneficial.
A higher fitness level leads to decreased risk of lung and colorectal cancer for men.
From 2004 to 2009, marked increase in observation among men with low-risk prostate cancer has been observed.
Prostate biopsies that combine both magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technology and ultrasound appear to give more accurate results, according to a new study.
A new study shows that men may be more likely to catch the flu than women and suffer in excess from the symptoms.
For some men, prostate cancer recurrence may be overdetected, especially in those aged over 70.
The effect of guidelines recommending that elderly men should not be routinely screened for prostate cancer has been minimal at best, according to a new study.
Guidelines recommending clinicians not routinely screen elderly men for prostate cancer have had a minimal effect on practice.
For economically disadvantaged men with newly diagnosed prostate cancer, poor knowledge about prostate cancer is associated with increased decisional conflict.
Men with diagnosed depressive disorders are less likely to pursue definitive treatment options for prostate cancer and more likely to have poorer outcomes.
Researchers found that cyclists who bike more may face a higher risk of prostate cancer, but not a greater chance of infertility or erectile dysfunction.
Vasectomy is associated with an increased incidence of prostate cancer overall during extended follow-up, with an elevated risk seen for high-grade and lethal cancer.
Depressed men with a diagnosis of intermediate- or high-risk prostate cancer have worse overall outcomes.
