A 72-year-old male with a history of prostate cancer and high prostate specific antigen levels underwent (99m)technetium-methylene diphosphonate ((99m)Tc-MDP) single-photon emission computed tomography/computed tomography (SPECT/CT), to identify bone metastasis.
The goal of treatment of metastatic prostate cancer remains palliation. The oligometastatic state could be the right time to intensify therapy by introducing metastases directed treatments. The aim of this trial was to evaluate the benefit of radiotherapy to all macroscopic metastatic sites and to the primary disease in patients with hormone sensitive oligometastatic prostate cancer.
Prostate cancer remains among the most commonly diagnosed malignancies worldwide in men. In patients with low-risk prostate cancer, the risk of metastasis and mortality is very low; therefore, a tumor surveillance strategy can be used.
In this paper, current guidelines regarding diagnostic and staging modalities of urothelial cancer of the bladder are summarized and an overview of endoscopic, imaging, and molecular methods currently being tested are outlined.
The standard treatment of patients with metastatic, hormone-sensitive prostate cancer (mCSPC) currently consists of medical or surgical castration. The addition of a cytotoxic chemotherapy was unable to provide a survival benefit over castration alone in several clinical trials using different chemotherapy regimens.
Metastasis is a common event in renal cell carcinoma. Surgical resection of metastases may be feasible in two scenarios: aiming at palliation, which may be feasible due to reduced radiosensitivity of renal cell cancer, and aiming at prolonging survival, which may be feasible given the rather good prognosis of some patterns of metastasis.
In penile cancer, lymph node metastasis is the main known prognostic factor affecting patients' survival. Early inguinal lymph node dissection or the resection of clinically occult lymph node metastases improves survival compared with removal when the metastases become clinically apparent.
Cancer-specific survival in men with penile cancer depends foremost on regional lymphatic metastasis and its extent. Patients with limited inguinal lymph node metastases have a 5-year survival of up to 80%.
Penile cancer is often an obvious visual diagnosis but histologic verification should be obtained prior to treatment. The clinical examination should determine the tumor stage and whether it has infiltrated the cavernous bodies and/or the urethra and it should adequately assess the inguinal lymph nodes.
Our purpose was to identify measures implemented by urologists and radiation oncologists at the initiation of a 6-month formulation of luteinizing hormone releasing hormone (LHRH) agonist in patients with advanced PCa.
Psychological stress of patients with penile cancer arises from the cancer diagnosis itself and the treatment consequences. In addition, there is cancer-specific distress. There is the chance of cure in localized stages and in those with limited regional lymph node metastases but this requires surgery and often adjuvant chemotherapy.
Primary tumor resection in patients with synchronous metastatic renal cell carcinoma and a good performance status corresponds to a guideline recommendation which, however, is based on weak data from the era of cytokine therapy.
Heat shock protein 90 (Hsp90) is a molecular chaperone that maintains the structural and functional integrity of various protein clients involved in multiple oncogenic signaling pathways. Hsp90 holds a prominent role in tumorigenesis, as numerous members of its broad clientele are involved in the generation of the hallmark traits of cancer.

The optimal treatment option for non-clear-cell renal cell carcinoma (nccRCC) is not established. We conducted a multicenter phase II trial of axitinib for patients with advanced nccRCC who had failed prior treatment with temsirolimus.
While modern therapies for metastatic prostate cancer (PCa) have improved survival they are associated with an increasingly prevalent entity, aggressive variant PCa (AVPCa), lacking androgen receptor (AR) expression, enriched for cancer stem cells (CSCs), and evidencing epithelial-mesenchymal plasticity with a varying extent of neuroendocrine transdifferentiation.
The bone marrow microenvironment represents a "metastatic niche" in which prostate cancer cells may persist and evade cytotoxic therapy. In order to study the biology of prostate cancer dissemination, we have established a safe and efficient method for performing pubic bone marrow aspiration at the time of radical prostatectomy.
Clear cell type renal carcinoma accounts for about 80% of all renal cell carcinomas. We present a 39-year-old male with clear cell renal carcinoma of the right kidney, stage I: T1 b (5 cm) N0 M0, who developed cutaneous metastases in the right submandibular region 28 months after nephrectomy.
OBJECTIVE - It is widely accepted that sialyl Lewis X (sLeX) and sialyl Lewis A (sLeA, also known as CA 19-9) glycans expressed on cancer cells function in E-selectin-mediated metastasis. Recently, it was reported that 6-sulfo sLeX glycans detected by the MECA-79 monoclonal antibody are expressed in roughly a quarter of gastric adenocarcinoma cases, and that these cases show a poorer prognosis than MECA-79-negative cases do. The present study was undertaken to assess expression of 6-sulfo sLeX glycans in bladder urothelial carcinoma and evaluate potential clinical implications.
This study aimed to evaluate the efficacy, safety, and tolerability of 2-cycled neoadjuvant sunitinib therapy (NST) in patients with inoperable metastatic renal cell carcinoma (mRCC). Between 2009 and 2012, 14 patients with inoperable mRCC from 5 Korean academic centers were prospectively enrolled after collecting their clinicopathological data and completing health-related questionnaires.
Metastatic renal cell carcinoma (mRCC) is a disease that portends poor prognosis despite an increasing number of novel systemic treatment options including new targeted therapies and immunotherapy. Ablative intervention directed at oligometastatic RCC has demonstrated survival benefit.
Spontaneously metastatic xenograft models of cancer are infrequent and the few that exist are resource intensive. In xenografts, caliper measurements can be used to determine primary tumor burden and response to therapy but in metastatic disease models determination of the presence of metastatic disease, metastatic burden, and response to therapy are difficult, often requiring serial necropsy.
Lymphovascular invasion (LVI) is an important step in bladder cancer cell dissemination. We aimed to perform a systematic review and meta-analysis of the literature to assess the prognostic value of LVI in radical cystectomy (RC) specimens.
In this study, we aimed to identify a DNA methylation pattern suitable for prognosis assessment of muscle-invasive bladder cancer and to investigate metastasis-associated processes regulated by DNA methylation.
Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is proved to be the ninth most common malignancy. Two-third of the patients suffering from RCC will present metastases. Secondary metastases of RCC to spermatic cord are very rare.
A greater knowledge of the mechanisms of the pathogenesis of penile cancers may assist in the development of more tailored targeted therapy. Herein, we aimed to evaluate the expression of CEACAM19 in penile cancer and to explore its regulatory mechanisms.
Decipher is a validated genomic classifier developed to determine the biological potential for metastasis after radical prostatectomy (RP).
To evaluate the ability of biopsy Decipher to predict metastasis and Prostate cancer-specific mortality (PCSM) in primarily intermediate- to high-risk patients treated with RP or radiation therapy (RT).
The ability of tumor cells to avoid immune destruction (immune escape) as well as their acquired resistance to anti-cancer drugs constitute important barriers to the successful management of cancer.
In daily practice, a wider range of patients with prostate cancer (PCa) are selected for active surveillance (AS) compared to those in AS trials, including higher-risk patients. However, less is known about the outcomes for off-protocol selected PCa patients who opt for AS.

The current study aimed to investigate the prognostic value of plasma intermedin levels for progression and distant metastasis in prostate cancers.
Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is a common malignancy with high metastatic potential, primarily due to its extensive vascularity. Common sites of metastasis include lungs, bone, lymph nodes, liver, and brain.
OBJECTIVE - To analyze if prediction of survival for patients with synchronous metastatic renal cell cancer (mRCC) could be further refined by baseline volume of the primary tumor, the metastases, or the remaining volume after surgery; this study was performed because survival expectancies of patients with intermediate-risk mRCC vary substantially.
BERKELEY, CA (UroToday.com) - Distant metastasis from colorectal carcinoma most often occurs in the liver and lungs.
We mined the literature for proteomics data to examine the occurrence and metastasis of prostate cancer (PCa) through a bioinformatics analysis. We divided the differentially expressed proteins (DEPs) into two groups: the group consisting of PCa and benign tissues (P&b) and the group presenting both high and low PCa metastatic tendencies (H&L).
The establishment of a metastatic renal cell carcinoma (mRCC) cell line can facilitate the search for molecular mechanisms involved in RCC metastasis. A novel human mRCC cell line, designated RCC96, was established from an mRCC of the spine from a 65-year-old Chinese man.
BKCa is a large conductance calcium activated potassium channel promoting prostate cancer cell proliferation, although the mechanism is not fully elucidated. In addition, whether BKCa is involved in metastasis of prostate cancer remains to be explored.
Retrospective identification of Gleason pattern 4 in metastatic Gleason score 3 + 3 = 6 (GS6) radical prostatectomy (RP) specimens has suggested true GS6 prostate cancer (CaP) lacks metastatic potential.
Advanced prostate cancer frequently metastasizes to bone and induces a mixed osteoblastic/osteolytic bone response. Standard treatment for metastatic prostate cancer is androgen-deprivation therapy (ADT) that also affects bone biology.
MET plays an important role in the development and progression of papillary renal cell carcinoma (pRCC). Evaluation of efficacy of MET inhibitors against pRCC has been hampered by limited preclinical models depicting MET abnormalities.
Bone metastases are a common complication of epithelial cancers, of which breast, prostate and lung carcinomas are the most common. The establishment of cancer cells to distant sites such as the bone microenvironment requires multiple steps.
Prostate cancer (PCa) was the fifth most common cancer overall in the world. More than 80% of patients died from PCa developed bone metastases. Caffeic acid phenethyl ester (CAPE) is a main bioactive component of honeybee hive propolis.
Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women except skin cancer. The common metastatic sites include lymph node, lung, liver and bone. However, metastasis to the bladder is extremely rare. To our knowledge, this is the first case of breast cancer metastasis to urinary bladder in Jordan which is reported.
It is estimated that ∼90% of patients with advanced prostate cancer develop bone metastases; an occurrence that results in a substantial reduction in the quality of life and a drastic worsening of prognosis.
