Some research suggests that drinking pomegranate juice may slow the progression of prostate cancer.
For example, in a study of men with recurrent prostate cancer and rising prostate-specific antigen (PSA) levels, researchers found that taking pomegranate juice extract significantly slowed the rate at which PSA was rising (PSA doubling time). A longer PSA doubling time can indicate that the cancer may be progressing less rapidly.
But this study did not… Read More »

Angela Culhane, chief executive of Prostate Cancer UK, said; “Ignoring your prostate can be lethal. You can’t see it, you can’t feel it, and shockingly many men only realise they have a prostate when it starts to kill them,
“If men really knew what the prostate can do to them, they wouldn’t ignore it. As a country, we need to wake up and stop men dying needlessly.

A new study suggests the chance of men developing prostate cancer increases with every inch to your waistline.
Scientists at Oxford University looked at around 140,000 men from 8 European countries over a period of 14 years.
They found every extra 4 inches on your waist raises your risk of fatal prostate cancer by 13%.
For example, men with a waist size of 37 inches had a 13% higher risk… Read More »
The US Preventative Services Task Force (USPSTF) is updating its controversial guidance about prostate cancer screening, and a final research plan was published online last week.
The plan will guide a systematic review of the available evidence on prostate cancer screening. In turn, the systematic review “will form the basis of the Task Force’s updated recommendations statement on this topic,” according to the USPSTF website.

Despite its common use, the PSA blood test cannot distinguish between low-grade cancer and high-grade cancer. Low-grade cancer can be monitored and does not need active treatment whereas high-grade cancer requires surgery and radiation therapy.
A new urine test that can detect genetic changes correlated with prostate cancer correctly identified cancer grade in 92% of men with elevated prostate-specific antigen (PSA) levels had high-grade cancers.
A new study, published in… Read More »

A moderate or intense exercise regimen may improve a man’s odds of surviving prostate cancer, according to research presented at the annual meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR), held from April 16 to 20 in New Orleans.
The American Cancer Society study included 10,067 men, aged 50 to 93, who were diagnosed between 1992 and 2011 with localized prostate cancer. The men provided researchers with information about… Read More »

Most men don’t talk about it. Not in mixed company, anyway, and usually not even when it’s just “us guys.” But prostate cancer is so common, striking one man in five, that if it doesn’t touch you directly, it will touch someone you know or work with.
Nationally, prostate cancer is the second-leading cause of cancer deaths among men — behind lung cancer — and it accounts for $5 billion… Read More »
