REUTERS: Men who show signs that their disease has returned after prostate cancer treatment are still more likely to die of other causes, a new study in US veterans shows. READ MORE>

URO TODAY: The size of your prostate tumour may predict whether you’ll get a recurrence of the disease after a prostatectomy – the bigger the tumour, the more the risk. READ MORE>

URO TODAY: Watchful waiting may not be a wise choice for younger men diagnosed with low risk prostate cancer, a new study suggests.

Our pathologic findings and risk of biochemical recurrence after open radical prostatectomy question the wisdom of active surveillance in men with low-risk disease who have “long” life expectancies. READ MORE>

URO TODAY: Researchers have investigated associations between 29 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNP) and biochemical recurrence, castration-resistant metastasis, and prostate cancer-specific survival, and found the SNPs are a clue to outcomes. READ MORE>

URO TODAY: Dutch researchers testing the use of (11)C-choline positron emission tomography as a way to identify the site(s) of prostate cancer that has spread after external beam radiation say it is 84% accurate. READ MORE>

PUB MED.COM: When biochemical recurrence occurs after initial prostate cancer treatment, prognostic factors for survival change, according to a new report from Australasian researchers (including NZ’s Professor David Lamb) who investigated at NZ and Australian patients. READ MORE>

Low initial PSA, short time to biochemical recurrence, and rapid PSA doubling time take over at this point, providing reasons why initial PSA and occurrence of biochemical recurrence alone predict prostate cancer-specific survival poorly.

URO TODAY: Factors used to predict a man’s likelihood of surviving prostate cancer change significantly if biochemical recurrence occurs – and his outlook is less favourable if he had low PSA when initially diagnosed, the time to recurrence is short and PSA doubling time is rapid. READ MORE>
