Metastatic prostate cancer (MPC) includes metastases detected at diagnosis (de novo) and those occurring after diagnosis with early-stage disease (recurrent). Cancer registries collect data only on de novo MPC, providing a partial picture of the burden of MPC.
Starting January 1, 2021, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services required United States hospitals to publicly disclose prices of their services provided. We analyzed publicly-disclosed prices of prostate cancer-related services.
To examine associations between exercise and cognitive function in older men undergoing hormone therapy for prostate cancer.
Men ≥ 65 years old with prostate cancer, currently undergoing androgen deprivation therapy for ≥ 6 months (n = 50), completed the Godin-Shephard Leisure-Time Physical Activity Questionnaire, and standard neuropsychological tests.
A man in his 50s with metastatic hormone-sensitive prostate cancer, receiving androgen deprivation therapy and abiraterone acetate/prednisone, presented with an uncontrollable 'Irish brogue' accent despite no Irish background, consistent with foreign accent syndrome (FAS).
Immunotherapy with checkpoint inhibitors (CPIs) has revolutionised cancer treatment but has no convincing effect in metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC). It has been suggested that a combination of CPI and hypofractionated stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) may work synergistically, and recent trials have supported this.
Due to medical improvements leading to increased life expectancy after renal transplantation and widened eligibility criteria allowing older patients to be transplanted, incidence of (low-risk) prostate cancer (PCa) is increasing among renal transplant recipients (RTR).
To characterize national trends in and associated outcomes of more often than annual PSA screening, which we term "prosteria".
Men in the Optum Clinformatics® Data Mart with ≥ 2 years from first PSA test to censoring at the end of insurance or available data (January 2003 to June 2019) or following exclusionary diagnoses or procedures, such as PCa treatment, were included.
Previous studies indicate that the benefit of short-term androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) with radiotherapy (RT) for prostate cancer depends on competing risks.
To determine whether a quantitative method to stratify patients by risk for competing events (omega score) could identify subgroups that selectively benefit from ADT.
Shared decision-making (SDM) for metastatic prostate cancer (mPC) engages patients in the decision-making process and may be associated with better outcomes relative to physician- or patient-directed decision-making.
Active surveillance (AS) is recommended for low-risk and some intermediate-risk prostate cancer. Uptake and practice of AS vary significantly across different settings, as does the experience of surveillance-from which tests are offered, and to the levels of psychological support.
