New active surveillance parameters allow for more individualized patient care
Active surveillance may be a viable option for some men, but reclassification of disease risk over time is imperative to ensure outcomes, according to researchers in Toronto, who will present these criteria during the 104th Annual Scientific Meeting of the American Urological Association.

Prostate cancer increases hip fracture risk by eight times in 50 to 65 year-olds
Men with prostate cancer are four times more likely to suffer a hip fracture and two times more likely to suffer any kind of fracture. The hip fracture risk rises to eight times in men aged 50-65. Prostate cancer is now a leading cause of male deaths in the US and Europe. The latest study, in BJU International, shows that the fracture risk appears shortly after diagnosis and is still pronounced in long-term survivors. (2007-10-11)

Metastatic prostate cancer cases skyrocket
The number of new cases of metastatic prostate cancer climbed 72 percent in the past decade from 2004 to 2013, reports a new study. The report considers whether a recent trend of fewer men being screened may be contributing to the rise, or whether the disease has become more aggressive -- or both. The highest increase is among men ages 55 to 69, who could benefit the most from screening and early treatment. (2016-07-19)
