A Swedish study has reported an increased risk of suicide in men diagnosed with prostate cancer. Even patients diagnosed with low-risk, early-stage disease had increased risk within the first 6 months following the diagnosis. The study was a nation-wide, population based study using the Prostate Cancer data Base in Sweden.
The Prostate Cancer Foundation (PCF) and Sanofi have initiated a new, one-way, text message-based support program called Prost8Care for men with advance prostate cancer to reinforce healthcare guidances on treatment, side effects, and diet.
Work-related stress is not linked to the development of colorectal, lung, breast or prostate cancers, a new study suggests. Around 90% of cancers are linked to environmental exposures and whilst some exposures are well recognised (such as UV radiation and tobacco smoke), others are not (psychological factors such as stress).
Axl is consistently overexpressed in prostate cancer cell lines and human prostate tumors. Blocking Axl gene expression strongly inhibits proliferation, migration, invasion and tumor growth researchers find. Results may have implications for new treatment development
